My Favorite Picture

Picture credit; Kathrin Gralla

This picture warms my heart, my mommy heart.

For some reason did I collect all (actually missing one pair that our dog ate) of my daughters riding boots.

From when she was three years-old, riding in south Italy, until now, 13 years-old in Germany.

She had a “break” from riding when she broke her femur, in a horse accident. Ollie was only 9 back then, and it was the worst evening in my life.

I asked her a couple of months later, when she got off her wheel chair, if she couldn’t consider starting playing golf!

Well no way! She got back on the horse(s) and started jumping…however, and recently she started playing polo —one kind of hitting a ball.

I am a proud mother!

That’s Amore!

Live a Little

0

This Easter made me think a little extra.

I always think a lot…it’s the author in me, I think!

However, maybe a little extra when life is bumpier than ‘normal’. I always tell my children to try to focus on the “helpers/brave” in the world, rather than looking too much into the “destroyers.”

One (of many stories out there) story that truly touched me with a storm of emotions, is Ms. Bailey who died this month at age 35 after battling cancer. Before leaving this planet, she carefully wrote her own obituary. Sharing and reminding us all, “Don’t take the small stuff to seriously and live a little.”

Read Ms. Bailey

I am humble.

Thoughts, Prayers, and Respect to her Family and Friends.

That’s Amore!

Goodbye Gracie

It never gets any easier to say goodbye to a friend. Our Gracie, taught me so much about thinking wrong about pet rats.

She actually cured me from being afraid of rats.

Amazing smart!

Amazing clean!

Amazing fun!

Why does Animals have such a short lifetime?

On the Run Towards New Goals

Since 1999 have I been in the Animal Rescue Life of Living.

Oregon I rescued thanks to Tracey Kleber big support. We got four other Rescue Horses that we brought back to feeling alive again. Feeling appreciated and loved.

At the same time they are giving me back so much more. They also not only appreciates me, loves me, making me feel alive again, they teach me to be in the moment.

So, my question is, who rescued who?

Does it matter?

That’s Amore!
