Spring, it's the time when the birds chirp, flowers bloom and life regenerates.
Living in a semi-rural town, I've had the unique opportunity to truly enjoy and be grateful for these finer moments that no doubt always brings a smile to my face.
Shortly after spring commenced, my pregnant Boer goat gave birth to triplets after a very long anticipated arrival. I returned to my home from a daily walk around the block to hear the persistent bellows of three kid goats.
Although we knew our doe was pregnant, and had even prepared for her to give birth, we didn't realise she would deliver so early. However, even without our assistance, Georgina was able to deliver all by herself.
This just proves nature is simply just marvellous and capable of much more than we humans give credit for by unnecessarily intervening in the natural circle of life to cause it to be worse than it was to begin with.
We believe we are essential to Mother Nature's survival, we cut down trees and call it maintenance, meanwhile we are ignorant and choose to run away from our problems in search of a new planet for us to destroy.
