but life is full of pleasant surprises.
June is a Farm Sanctuary animal. Farm Sanctuary is an organization dedicated to rescuing farm animals from abusive situations. June was one of two hens and 27 peeps rescued from a cock fighting ring. Thanks to Farm Sanctuary they now all live happily and safely on a farm in New York.
We adopted June because we thought “what better way to honor the mothers on our blog!” Happy Mother’s Day!
“To know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived, that is to have succeeded.” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
Not only are we the proud parents of June, but we thought she would make a great mascot for Inperspire. We think she will be a wonderful spokeschicken to raise awareness of the plight of animals used/abused in food animal production. If you are interested in adopting your own farm animal please check out the Farm Sanctuary site. We hope to visit June this summer and we will be sure to post new pictures of her!
And because I cannot resist one more super cute picture:
Now, on to human mothers On this Mother’s Day I would like to thank my mother for teaching me everything I know about what it means to be a good mom. When my son, Robbie, was young someone told me that I was going to spoil him because I held him too much. When I asked my mom if she thought this was true she said, ”You can never spoil a child by loving them too much.” She was right. Thank you, Mom, for raising us to know what’s right and what’s wrong, for ALWAYS being there, and for teaching us how it’s done. X’s and O’s.
P.S. We would like to say thanks to Jackson of And Her Little Dog Too for filling in as our mascot until we could find one of our own. Thanks, Jackson, you’re the best!
