Good Deeds

I have been wanting to write about this for a long time but just haven't had the time with school and work and all that I have going on right now.  However, I feel that this story is important to share because it gave me Hope and a realization that there are still a lot of really good people in the world.

If you don't already know, I work at a bank.  A few months ago one of our female customers who is on a fixed income and can't work due to a disability came into the bank.  One of our tellers was helping her while I was helping another man.  The lady asked the teller how much money she had in the bank for which the teller informed her that she had $8.50.  The lady then informed the teller that she would like to withdraw all but the 50 cents but wanted to make sure that wouldn't cause her account to be closed.  The teller gave her the money and the lady left.

Meanwhile, I was helping a man who happened to not even be one of our customers but was only there depositing money into an account that did belong to one of our customers.  After I completed his transaction he opened his wallet and took all of his cash out and handed it to me asking me to please make sure it got deposited into that lady's account that just left.  He said it wasn't much but was all that he had at the time. And with that he left.  He wasn't a customer so we didn't even know his name.  He was a stranger helping another stranger in need.

And with that both me and the other teller broke out into tears.  What an amazing thing to do for a stranger! What he gave me to deposit may not seem like much to him, but could mean that lady may have enough for another meal when she may have had to go without.  It was really touching!  And it renewed my faith in people.

This example reminds me of a song by Alabama "Angels Among Us".   Here are a few lyrics.  

Oh I believe there are angels among us.
Sent down to us from somewhere up above.
They come to you and me in our darkest hours.
To show us how to live, to teach us how to give.
To guide us with the light of love.

I believe that man was an angel that day!  His example makes me want to be a better person!

The FaRmiLy

I just wanted to introduce you to some of our FaRmiLy....


This is are studly male Llama, Caesar
Isn't he a gorgeous animal.  Love his eye lashes.


We have had 4 Llama babies since November

Up front and center is Cinnamon and her baby Oreo is behind her.  
Dotty is the white Llama and her baby is Brownie right there in the middle
Oreo was born in early November, Brownie was born about a week later.  
Caesar fathered Brownie.

This is Baby Cakes and her baby Valentino.
Valentino was born on Valentines Day!

This is Pyam and in the background is Sebastian
Pyam is pregnant in the picture.  
Sebastian is the father of Oreo and Valentino and the unborn baby.
He is quite the stud!  Wish I had a better picture.

This is Cinnamon and Oreo a day or two after he was born.

And here are our cows.  These beauties are all Brangus Heifers.  
They are named after the Disney Princesses, Ariel, Jasmine and Mireda.
These are our future breeders.  

And the newest member of our Llama family is this beauty named Mystique.
Pyam gave birth to her on March 28th.  

The cows welcoming her into the world.  
Each one got to give her kisses.  
Surprisingly, mama Pyam allowed them to do this.  
Very sweet!  

And this is our cat Tangerine who as you can see loves our Daisy
Also very sweet!  

And here is our little princess Abby at Christmas

There are still a few more members of our FaRmiLy that I need to get photos of.  For instance we have 10 baby chicks that are almost big enough to go outside into their coop.  Right now they are in the garage under a heat lamp.  I will post photos of them soon.  

Yes I am quite the Rancher, Farmer, Cow Girl nowadays.  
My Grandpa would be proud!

Lovin' this Life!!

Great way to start a day!
