Lambing season has started at Mt Saviour Monastery. At last count more there are more than 100 new lambs and counting. I check in on them every day and Saturday took a grandson to see the lambs as I’ve been doing every year. The last few years he has become aware that not all lambs are born easily or even survive. When we arrived this time we found two new lambs, one in distress. He looked at the lamb and sighed.. oh it will die. He can be such a little pessimist at times. But the lamb, thanks to his good shepherds rallied and so did the second lamb and so did Mom. Today I visited them and all were healthy.

In the photo is my grandson climbing out of the nursery pen where he was busy playing with lambs picking out the lamb he wanted to take home. When informed that the lambs really preferred to live with other lambs, without missing a beat he exclaimed… Ok… I’ll take two!
