Day 10 – Postcards from the Heart

Oct 7, 2020

There has been a hard pill for me to swallow today, that I made a med error that may have caused all this unbalancing + nausea. The late dose of “Dex” as the Cancer Clinic has been calling it. Who knows? In my role as caregiver I feel like Jill in this picture, focused, watching, assessing and interpreting. She is watching her Dad and I work and is ready to open her gate to let heifer calves through and into the pen she is in. The steer calves are let into a different pen, the cows another. She is watching to see what animal is coming down the alley and listening for any verbal clues/instructions. Things sometime pile up and mistakes get made, by all of us. This is life. Mistakes evoke reflection on the idea of “forgiveness”. I think you have modelled what Jesus taught in the Lord’s Prayer, that Forgiveness is a way of life. Thank-you.


This postcard uses an image from December 4, 2019, when Liz Griffin Photography was with us to capture the process of weaning our calves from their Moms and getting them ready to market. I notice I did not address this note to Mom, just jumped right in, I have recreated it here exactly as I initially wrote it.

This post is the 10th of 22 in a series of blogs arising from circumstances detailed in the blog post called “Postcards from the Heart – Day 1.”
