Time to Finish Up

0

It is truly time to finish up the manuscripts that are laying waiting.

The time is here. I am so excited to finishing up the fourth one.

Cannot wait to share my stories together with you!

This spring and summer am I going to Sweden. South Sweden is on the target!

That’s Amore!

Welcome Hope to our Sanctuary

0

I found her in the mouth of a dog. Actually the dog was great spitting the bird out when I shouted. The dog walked away, and I picked up a wounded Hope. That’s what my daughter named her. Hope….we have hope that the bird will be fine.

I brought her into our Sanctuary– it starting to get crowded.

She stopped bleeding but her wing and one foot is not healed. My daughter feeds her live worms and today I found out that she slept under Olivia’s blanket (together)

That’s Amore!

We got a New Client

In my home it’s me who brings home wounded or/and homeless animals. Not my children!

Not that they wouldn’t do it, there is no chance I find them first.

However, I am very proud over my children (12 and 10 y) they have become wonderful animal friends. Carrying and showing empathy to both humans and animals.

We welcome Hope into our Animal Sanctuary! We hope you will heal and feel comfortable here!

That’s Amore!

Horses as Teachers

0

Since 1997 hade I been working with horses in many different countries. I never trained the horse, I trained the humans (owners and groomers) how to get more out from your horse. (And yourself)

Psychology, health, training, competitions, but mostly, communication between each other.

When the horse becomes a machine, and the horse only “stands” there, the danger have occurred.

His spirit is “locked down”! You will never become a better rider (owner) when you stop listening to your beloved team mate.

One groomer put her horse carrots on the ground outside his open box.

He saw them and it was a delightful temptation for him.

Other Horses with their groomers walked by. The horse with his carrots without reach, put his ears back and threaten the passing horses.

He looked like a crazy horse! Evil!

I could see why, but the others didn’t understand him.

The groomer got irritated and slapped him, not ones, but three times, hard in his face.

This is what I teach. The small signs the Animals shows us, the small communication that gives us the big picture. To become a better teammate.

Animals don’t judge. They are actually our teachers and I, am only the translator! It is difficult not to judge, that is why I admire Animals.

We humans, will always be students our whole life!

That’s Amore!

Give Back

0

It’s fun to give back! Me and my son Max, started volunteering at my daughters school.

Delivering Popcorn twice a month to classes 6,7 and 8.

It’s a great opportunity to teach Max that giving back to the community can be very inspiring.

And even more so, to get to know new friends, meeting the teachers and the schools awesome Principal.

When we chose to do nothing, …. nothing is what we will reap.

That’s Amore!

Tell me Again

1

Tell me again why I am doing this?

I am going to be honest, I had to talk me into going several times. However, the look on my children’s face was painful when I said we wouldn’t go ice skating. Their sad expressions made my brain (and heart) going. (I had promised them but wanted to back out)

Inside of me I heard “be better, go, go, go”

That little self-push is so important!

Did I love it? Not really! But I loved the children’s smiles and, I loved that I tried out something new.

And, that I won my battle with my mind!

That’s what I am working on, discipline to do more things. The best coaches = children.

That’s Amore.
