COMPASSION — My son has teachers that cannot speak nor write nor communicate beyond their body language & reactions.
I was recently reading a father's perspective on the value of raising his children with livestock. How keeping animals has taught his children compassion, sensitivity, selflessness, hard work, satisfaction, intuition, trust, fearlessness, gentleness & strength. These are the deep qualities of character that cannot be taught but developed by, as the writer said, teachers that cannot speak nor write nor communicate.
My children's best teachers have been chickens & pigs & goats and little kittens who have given as much to my children as my children have given to them in both stewardship & love.
