Sunday afternoon Don was not feeling well at all. I had planned to take Roman, the baby lamb out into the bluebonnets to get some pictures. As badly as Don felt, he really wanted to go with me. We gathered up the camera, tied a cute brass bell around Roman's neck with a light green ribbon and were off.
About 10 miles from our farm there is a small country road with a beautiful old church...with a stunning field of bluebonnets in front of it. The perfect and safe spot for our pictures!
Here we were able to let Roman loose. He was very timid at first.
He loves to play chase though, so when I started to run...
..he followed. We played chase for a long time..
..until my old body could not take it anymore.
We stopped to rest and had a picnic...well Roman did anyway!
Then, even though he did not feel well, Don could not just stand by without joining in the fun..
He started to jog back and forth..
..and as always, Roman followed, calling out to Don...whom might I add he thinks is his Mommy!
When we were walking back to the truck, Don reflected how Roman just revives his spirit.I just smiled as I nodded in agreement. He is a gift from God. That is for sure!
