Time together with You

0

Volunteering together with my children has always been a joy. I try to do it at least two days a month — do I count all the volunteering hours rescuing animals for our own organization, then we do it every day!

Hands up for America, which is fantastic (many times) with all their different volunteering programs.

You can try new things, get free education, and give back to your community.

When it’s popcorn delivery at my daughters school, it’s a great time to visit her environment. Meet teachers and school friends.

I get another feeling when my daughter tells me about her days, and I am connecting with her stories.

Max had a day off from his school and could join me. Afterwards he told everyone that wanted to listen, he couldn’t wait until he starts middle school.

Little scary, but mostly exiting of course!

This is in an American school, in Germany.

That’s Amore!

Helping Hands and Hearts

In a couple of hours am I meeting a woman I admire in many ways.

She is the founder of the nonprofit organization Kainos. A ministry working against human trafficking and sexual exploitation in prostitution.

Their vision is to see freedom for victims of human trafficking and sexuality exploitation with an opportunity for a new life.

Helping Hand

Last Saturday me and my children joined a manifestation in Stuttgart, Germany.

The amazing thing was that it was a manifestation worldwide.

Against human slavery, prostitution and human trafficking. I think it’s important for everyone to join and learn more about the silent tragedy out there. But also the helping hands that are there. And for a victim, it’s very important to be seen, heard and taken seriously.

And especially today when we are stressed and tired, many are unhappy. We disappear daily into Instagram or FB world, maybe dreaming about someone else’s life.

It doesn’t have to big changes right away. However showing support is a big step in the right direction.

And give someone a compliment, send a heart spontaneous to someone and tell the person you thought about them.

If someone shared an emotional help to you, maybe you cannot help, however, you can show the person that you are there!

Don’t be a stranger!

Don’t say later!

We never know what road we have to walk, or when.

Be a Friend

Be Kind

That’s Amore!

Horses as Therapists

0

Our rescue horse Julia, is an one of our amazing therapists. Helping other children and adults to lower their anxiety, depressions, and their inner negative monologues.

People feel a connection without any words by being present together with the horse(s).

School, or work stress gets off their shoulders, and smiles appears on their faces.

Sometimes you don`t want, or feel ready to talk to a person, or answer uncomfortable questions. Only to be in the moment and breathe, with someone that is there for you with their love. (Little like a grandma feeling)

That’s Amore

Winning in Life

When Olivia was four years old she attended a horse competition in jumping! She did great, rode up to the judge an d greeted. She had nothing to compare with. It was fun! I had told her early on to respect the horse, to talk and listen to the horse. “You are nothing without your horse, he is your teammate. Respect and be thankful!” I told her.

I often saw her thanking the horse by standing in front of him.

The best part was, all children won! Great message!

She grew up. Had a terrible horse accident broke her femur, but determined to get back again.

Thanks to her teachers that let her grow with time not forced tempo. Today she is a very good rider. A good rider got respect, listens and communicate with the horse.

Today she has rescued together with me four other horses that didn’t receive all the respect they should. However,there were people behind that wanted me to help them.

Olivia listens, grooms them and the. She rides them. But on their own ways.

Olivia got compassion and passion and waits patiently with the competitions. “I am not in A hurry.” She says — even if I see her heart would love too–

Thank you Olivia for being such a wise young beautiful lady, that still sees the horses soul.

That’s Amore!

Let Women Into your Life

To my daughter.

Always believe in yourself. Find women that are not afraid of sharing their wisdom to you. Women that want to help you get stronger and wiser, that want you to succeed in life.

These women will come and go in your life.

Listen and remember, and grow.

Then, you do the same.

Thank you Mi for helping my daughter grow!

That’s Amore!
