Thanks for constituting this wonderful award!

“Two Awards In One Week Shine On and WordPress Family Award”

Friends of the Donkey Whisperer Farm

I have been blogging for three years now, I am grateful to each and every one of you who take the time to read my blog.  Some of you read each and every post I add to my blog in my wildest dreams I never imagined how wonderful blogging would make me feel especially since I am disabled and not able to work anymore. I worked from the time I was sixteen years old and well I guess you could say I find purpose in working, my blog has become like a job for me as it takes time, effort and most importantly prayer.

Blogging is a way for me to stay creative, use my brain muscle and stay connected to our fragile world via your life story and your blogs.  I find blog news to be much better than the television news.

Some of you have reached out to me and we have exchanged some very personal things we share in this thing called life. Perhaps one day I will write a book about my life but for now I share what I can to help inspire, give hope and remind each one of you that GOD in Jesus Christ name is real. GOD creates miracles today, I know as I am a miracle, I am a child of Jesus Christ and so are you. JESUS loves all of his children each and every one of us.

I received two awards this week; WordPress Family from Connective Tissue Disorder Ms. Kati and Shine On Award from PIG LOVE the adventures of Bacon and Friends blog.

.  WordPress Family Award

Now for a description of the award in the words of the Creator Of The Award:

 It is my honor to start this award.” from Shaun @ http://prayingforoneday.wordpress.com/ 

This is an award for everyone who is part of the “WordPress Family” I started this award on the basis that the WordPress family has taken me in, and showed me love and a caring side only WordPress can show. The way people take a second to be nice, to answer a question and not make things a competition amazes me here. I know I have been given many awards, but I wanted to leave my own legacy on here by creating my own award, as many have done before. This represents “Family” we never meet, but are there for us as family.

I love awards to add to my blog as they remind me that what I am doing is important as my blog affects people, animals, our environment and most of all I pray I am pleasing Jesus Christ my Lord and Savior.  I am a child of GOD and so are you! bluebellss I’m honored to say that my friend and blogger Katie (Connective Tissue Disorder blog) has nominated me for the “WordPress Family Award”. I particularly like and understand the essence of this award because so many of my fellow bloggers have become like family to me. I am really honored to be nominated for this blog with all the blogs in WordPress and I am grateful to have met Katie she is an inspiration.

On a personal note:

I have been writing on my blog for three years now in between trying to get my life back one day at a time after surviving a life threatening car accident (semi-truck) while riding as a passenger.

Blogging is a wonderful way to stay connected to our most precious world and share free information to help people and animals.


With just a couple of clicks of your computer you have helped a donkey, horse or mule have a better life, ahh the power of the internet.  

GOD bless you and your family two and four-legged!

Blog Of The Year Award 2012

I am honored to receive this Award from All Things Boys – Thank you again!  I am a bit overwhelmed as blogging started out after surviving a life threatening motor vehicle accident while riding as a passenger.

How Blogging Has Helped Me

Blogging helped me fill my time, stay connected to the people in our most fragile world

Blogging has given me a sense of purpose

with the extremely long isolated days and nights (pain) turned into

 weeks than months and finally years

Almost three years of physical therapy rehabilitation learning how to walk and adapt to chronic nagging pain caused by the broken ribs that did not heal correctly along with three long surgically installed screws in my pelvis. I suffer from horrific back pain, rib pain, neuropathy in my feet, ankles and deep aching pain in my right hip where the screws were surgically drilled into my pelvis.  Pain is something I write about to help others and share why training equine in a natural way without pain and resistance is the very best way.

Please remember to trust Jesus Christ each and every day and make him your Lord & Savior as he is truly the light of our most fragile world.

Here is instructions for the Blog Of The Year 2012
