Heifer Black Friday Fun!!!
If you click on that link above, you'll see why I'm smiling...
I get to sleep in.
I get to eat pie.
I get to hang with my kids and talk about cool stuff like Hurricane-Wannabe-Sandy...
Crisis in the Middle East.
Which chickens lay brown eggs?
These are goats.
They give milk, but for a lot less food than cows.
They are crazy adaptable...
They're people friendly. And stinkin' cute, right???
How adorable are these babies???
Food... meat.... milk.... reproduce in kind....
and then you have a HERD of goats.
Herds provide food for many.
Our Westward expansion in the United States was hugely helped by managed agriculture.
Someone brought the first "freshened" cows....
And started a herd.
The first cats went for .50 a piece and that was a lot of money for a kitten...
But if field mice were eating your seed and your flour and your wheat, then that fifty cent
investment was HUGE....
I love Heifer International.
I love the "teach a man to fish" mindset.
I love that they help the least of our brethren while I'm blessed abundantly.
This is my Black Friday Shopping Extravaganza!!!
Wishing you a Happiest of Thanksgivings and a peaceful, spirit-filled Merry Christmas!
