My Favorite Picture

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!

I didn’t leave to hurt you!

I left to heal me!

I read this somewhere many years ago. It was so true. I had to leave since we were destroying each other instead of being uplifting to each other. Blame game kept going!

Exhausted, and full of pain managing to stop being codependent.

Why are we trying to destroy each other, and everything that is so beautiful in our environment.

Animals doesn’t do that.

That’s Amore!

You are Not Invisible

For many years now have I been rescuing all kind of Animals.

I know how it feels not being heard, while in pain.

I know how it feels not being seen, while in pain.

I know how it feels when you seek help and you hear, “so sorry, but we cannot help you! We do not have the resources.”

I know how it feels when you tell your story, over and over and over again. You open door after door, and everything feels right then hopeless.

You want to scream!

You want to cry!

You want to walk away, and never tell anyone your story again.

I have seen the worst neglected animals you possible can imagine. I have brought them with me without thinking or planning.

Hundreds of dogs, and some horses. People has said, “no they are too damage to save!”

Months later, they are astonishing beautiful!

I am so proud over them.

And amazed.

And I am learning through them.

You are not invisible. Please Keep walking, and there will be that one person, which will know and dare to help you.

Stay in the Moment

💚 It’s so peaceful and my mind becomes quiet.

Like into a restful moment, just like our rescue horse taught me.

That’s Amore!

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!

❤️ “Are you a psychologist?” the man asked me curiously.

“If My answer is yes, will that increase my reliability!”

Psychologist, I have been reading a lot.

Common sense, I have been living a lot.

Balance is practice!

Does it matter where the wisdom comes from?

Listen to our young ones.

They know!

That’s Amore!

Means the world to me. Actually, spending time with them means everything to me.

We went to St Moritz to see World Cup in Horse Polo on a frozen lake.

Amazing day. Sunlight, plenty of snow and great play.

Thanks to amazing photographer Kathrin Gralla, we now have a permanent memory.

That’s Amore!
