Hello sweet friends,
Perhaps you are just reading my blog for the first time?
If yes, I pray you will return when you need to smile and find some inspiration. Jesus Christ is the reason I am alive today, the reason my blog will bring you peace, and strength to never give up. I am a walking talking miracle, I am a survivor of a semi-truck accident while riding as a passenger, life is never ever fair. This motor vehicle accident has left me forever permanently physically disabled, something I would never ever wish on anyone, disability is invisible in many cases to others, sadly it is very real to the person suffering with a disability. I am no longer able to stand for long periods of time without rib, back and hip pain. I can never go for a hike again or walk on a beach, go dancing, ride my equine on trail rides or even ride for long amount of time due to hip, rip and back pain along with my feet going numb. Sitting too long is difficult too as my pelvis wants to be elevated. My ribs will spasm from over working my body in any way and even from laughing while sitting down. Still, I live my life grateful and full of hope and joy, living each day as it is my last. Why? I am a miracle, I am a survivor and I choose to live my life not as a victim but as a victor.
In 2014 I started the Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC business with my husband of twenty-three years. I work very hard to stay productive as I teach worldwide from my computer to my students computer “how to train a donkey, mule or horse.” Animals are GOD’s angels, healers sent to help us humans live our life with purpose and peace, I have loved animals since I was a child. Animals live in the moment if we humans could only learn to let go of anger, hate and grudges. Wow, what our world could be?
After the car accident my husband and I were forced to change our life 100%. We needed to move into land that would help me walk, no more hills, less rain as my arthritis is so bad. Looking ahead six years from the date of the car accident we have had an amazing journey. One of tears, pain, suffering, laughter and a grateful attitude. Before the motor vehicle accident I was a master gardener of flowers. I so loved to work in my garden, after the accident I could no longer bend and care for my flowers. We moved to our farm in Sequim, WA in 2014. God once again started whispering to me, and another beautiful creation in Jesus Christ name has been created, the Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC, Sequim, WA surrounded by the beauty of the olympic mountains, we literally live in the middle of our hay-field. Wild life are entirely different in this blue hole called Sequim, WA.
Before we sold our home of fourteen years I carefully planned to take a few of my most favorite plants. This was not an easy decision as each plant was important to me when I designed and loved on my flower gardens in our former home. Here is a sneak preview of the miracle of life GOD in Jesus Christ name has placed into my heart, soul and mind. I so enjoy the garden, flowers are an important part of my life and now I am working on growing low sugar hay, and food for us. We planted a little fruit orchard last winter and I am grateful to share we have one peach and several apples. God just gave me another surprise a box full of baby birds. Nothing gives us a feeling of hope like a baby in human or animal form. Babies are like spring a new beginning, thus my first photo my little bird I am welcoming into this great big world with fresh water and bird food when he/she is ready.
Please no matter what you are facing in life never give up! God in Jesus Christ name is amazing. God will plant a dream and time can be years before the dream unfolds, this I know GOD will always take care of his children. We must trust, have faith and stay positive. This is never easy. Thus why I share my life with you.
GOD bless you and your family two and four-legged!
