3 little pigs

“The mother is worthless” the farmer informs me.

My heart sunk.

“We bought her for over two thousand but now we’d never get more than fifty or sixty bucks”

I fought the urge the to tell him that by his standards he is even more worthless than she is. After all, she gives birth. What does he do? Instead I reminded myself that he grew up a farmer. His father was a farmer. His grandfather was a farmer etc…

“She isn’t worthless. She’s their mama, she’s beautiful and she is as valuable as any of us”.

I went outside and had a tiny little cry.

I hope one day people finally get it.
