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!

Magical Walk

Learn from Nature!

I am feeling so blessed to have our horses at Hirschof (Southern Germany) Every day I go there I can breath and slow down.

Horses are reading us faster than we are trying to describe ourselves to someone.

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.

Horses Minds and Hearts

You enter the horses mind and hearts respectfully while listening to their wisdom.

You know your knowledge, but the horse knows his potential the best. 

Listen and you will grow!

That’s Amore!

Mission Together

0

Since my children were born they have together with me gone on different missions.
When Olivia was only 3 months old, she and I went to a children hospital with 30 teddy bears!
When Max was 4 months old he went together with me and Olivia to an Italian Orphan home with donations.

Last Wednesday, we went on a new mission, I don't know how many hundreds missions we have been on already. I find it very important to involve my children, not only is it wonderful to be a rescue team. But it's also very nourishing for our souls.

To meet other people, children and animals that need some kind of help. Meeting others that are working with any kind of rescuing. And to see different environments, to understand that we all live differently.

I am incredibly proud over both my children, Max and Olivia!

They are in charge of two puppies traveling from Italy up to our home in Germany. And this Thursday are their new family from Sweden driving down to pick up the puppies for adoption!

That's Amore!

Ps. After a mission we always make something fun together. Like taking a wonderful dip in the pool.

Beautiful video made for me

Watch the video here

Six years ago, we moved up from Italy to Germany. It was my saddest time in life.

I had to leave my dream. My dream, that I had together with others built up so hard.
A Senior Sanctuary Hospice, that we named Casa dell Amore!

My beautiful volunteers made this incredible video and yesterday I revived it from Chiara Ricci, I hadn't seen it since the day we left.

AWL are still working very hard rescuing animals down in Italy. And one day, very soon, will I open up a new Hospice! A bigger and better, together with inspiring people and veterinarians.

That's Amore!
