Remembering Lavender

Our Lavender was the sweetest little love. I wish I could bottle up her soft nose kisses and gentle “maaaa” sound, but the best I can do is gather some favorite photos into one place for my family to return to when we miss her. I hope you’ll enjoy them, too. {Lavender is the one in the pink collar; her sister, Lily, is in the blue.}





















And one short video featuring Lavender’s sweet sound:

Wish I had a video of the lambs bouncing and bounding in the barnyard during their first weeks here. Talk about adorable! And of course, I wish I had more photos, but I thought I’d have years to capture these two together. We miss our sweet Lavender. But now we have to turn our attention toward her spunky sister, Lily. She’s feeling the loss. Buddy and Bella are the best ever shepherds and guardians, but they don’t make up for Lavender. We’re praying about the next step. And you can bet we’ll keep you posted.

  • Adrienne - Linsey, so sorry you lost little Lavender. I’ve always wanted to frame a picture of a lamb with the 23rd Psalm. Maybe that mental picture will give you a little comfort this morning. <3ReplyCancel

  • Susan Stanford - Hey! Hope you are having a fabulous weekend!
    My mom has mentioned for a few years how she would love to have a print of lambs for her house. I was at her house this weekend and was showing her your blog and all your beautiful farm animals, and she just adored your lamb pictures. I would love to have one blown up and framed for her for Christmas and was wondering if I could purchase the digital copy for one? Thank you!!!
