New Milk Maid

Sep

IMG_9731
Morgan’s friend Jennie moved in with us temporarily as of yesterday. Jennie’s house burned down this past weekend. This is the second time in her young life that Jennie has lost everything in a fire. Jennie is staying with us while her parents get situated some place comfortable with room for the whole family. Unfortunately, they want her back, because I’d be happy to keep Jennie forever! She wants to learn how to milk! I’m going to teach her to make butter and cheese!


Jennie: “Morgan, we’re going to milk! I love cows!”

Morgan: “I hate cows.”

I THINK JENNIE IS MY REAL DAUGHTER! THEY MUST HAVE BEEN SWITCHED AT BIRTH! Finally, I’ve found her!

    Jennie sounds like a keeper to me! Start the adoption process quickly!

    Please tell Jennie and her family how sorry I am about the fire. I hope no one was hurt.

    Lots of people like the _idea_ of milking cows because it does sound like fun.
    Once…
    or twice…
    It’s the relentless twice a day commitment to a schedule that you can’t decide to just ignore that wears some people down.
    Bravo for your commitment to all your animals.

    Jenny is lucky to have such a friend in Morgan. Losing everything in a fire so young is a tough life lesson.

    Dear Kindred Spirits,
    One of my earlist Dreams was when I got booques of money i would build a hugh house, back of a lake, and take in all of the children – that noone wanted. This insident has stayed with me – My Uncle kept foster children until placement could be completed. One dat I went to his house and a little freckled-face, red headed boy came up to me and said “I the boy that noone wants.”
    All they want is security and love…. You can’t outgive the Lord.
    Let me be a blessing to someone today. No I never got rich but have enjoyed giving a helping hand.

    My prayers for Jennie and her family, fire is so scary. Glad you and Morgan can help her and her family. Your karma account swells while you get a milk maid!

    What a blessing to be able to lend a hand while Jennie and her family recover from the house fire. The kindness came back to you with help for the milking. Will pray for her family that they find a new place soon.

    I am so sorry to hear Jennie and her family lost their home. I know first hand what that feels like. But TWICE! I don’t think I could handle that. I know you will take good care of her. She is in excellent hands.

    Prayers for Jennie and her family for their ordeal! I’m happy that you’re able to help her by giving her a place to live for now. Maybe you can hire her to come live with you and be a milk maid. :D

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
