My ancestors were farmers and shepherds. Their task was both varied and arduous, demanding and dangerous. Not only did they have to protect their sheep from dangers, sickness, and wild beasts, they also had to be constantly on the search for good pastures and sufficient water. I remember when my grandfather taught me how to tend to the flocks. Every morning he took them out to the streams of water and then to good pastures. When the day was toward evening, he led them back to water and then to the stable. Every morning and every evening he counted them diligently and he rejoiced that he did not lose any of them.
