My Best Friend Is My Hubby Scott Of Almost 23 Years!


best friend

I love you Scott!



GOD has a plan, he takes one extrovert with big dreams and one introvert and mixes this together to make Mr. and Mrs. Scott Johnson. Thank you Scott! Thank you for making all my dreams come true. Thank you for not letting me lay in sorrow after the semi-truck accident and cry, thank you for not selling my horse and donkeys.  Thank you for giving me four more donkeys and another horse.  Thank you for stepping out of the city life into the life of a farmer. Thank you for living in this tiny 5th wheel with me so we can build our last home.

You are truly a farm man now! Thank you for not turning me in for a younger healthy model after the semi-truck accident, you stuck with me and help me live with the pain every day.  Most men would have walked away but not you, you stood by my side day after day and still when I cry from pain you hold my hand and tell me you love me. I am so much in love with you, more than words can describe.

I love you so much and I want you to always remember that the best thing that ever happened to me in this world is you! You are my best friend, my lover, my husband and my partner in this thing called life. I am forever grateful for every minute, hour and day we have together. We never know when our time is up, so we cherish the moments we get! You always make me laugh when I want to cry, you always tell me things will get better. You are truly an inspiration to me and you Scott Johnson are the man of my dreams. You are my Rock and I pray I am for you what you are for me.

This is my love letter to you in public! I know we are private but today I needed to say thank you, I love you to the entire world. As the last year has been difficult but great things are ahead. We started a new business together Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC and soon GOD will provide the resources to start growing low sugar/protein hay on our farm. THANK YOU JESUS CHRIST!

We are now fifty-five and going stronger every day!


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

GOD is amazing! I am very grateful to GOD in Jesus Christ name and my husband Scott. I am a survivor of a semi-truck accident leaving me with a life long physical disability. I will never give up! Please no matter what you are suffering with trust Jesus to help you as he has me and my family two and four-legged.

Life is never easy, never but if we let go and dance with Jesus it is more than we could even dream. I am excited to share that my dream of owning my business Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC is in place. This business is new and a baby but just wait and watch what GOD is going to do next.

Soon we will be selling mini, standard and Mammoth rope haters, lead lines, brass snaps made from yacht rope and each handmade in the USA along with handmade training tools. One regular size and one mini donkey size. Soon we will sell our home in Kingston, WA and begin to build our new home.

Living in the 5th wheel has been humbling and exciting as hubby Scott and I get to go play less house work. Never give up! If you have a dream, pray and take a chance, life is short and fragile. My pain is managed but nerve pain never ends, back pain never ends and yet I refuse to give up.

I pray my real life story inspires you. What you may think is the end of the world may be a new beginning, when GOD shuts a door he always opens a better one.

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

Real friends are rare, angels sent by GOD in Jesus Christ precious name. Remember if you have two really good friends this is rare indeed.  If you have two really good friends you are blessed beyond gold and riches.

Nothing tests a friendship like trauma, you find out real quick who your real friends are.

I have no idea how he knows when I need him.
We can go weeks without speaking,
and then, when my blue moods threaten to turn black,
he will show up and tell me my moods are:
and suddenly the blue will not seem so dark,
more like the color of a noon-bright sky.
He brings the sun.

— David Levithan, The Realm of Possibility


The dynamic of friendship is almost always underestimated as a constant force in human life: a diminishing circle of friends is the first terrible diagnostic of a life in deep trouble: of overwork, of too much emphasis on a professional identity, of forgetting who will be there when our armored personalities run into the inevitable natural disasters…

Warm In The Pacific Northwest, Feb 2015

Friends of the Donkey Whisperer Farm,

GOD has been smiling on us, giving us favor as we took a leap of faith packed our life away, left our large home and moved into our 5th wheel in Sequim, WA 2014. The winter of 2015 has been breaking records for warmth, we are now reaching 60 degrees most days and all of the hay is starting to grow again, soon it will be time to cut hay again. Seems while most of the east coast is suffering from record snow levels and freezing temperatures we are enjoying spring weather. Here are a few of the photos I have taken since moving to Sequim, WA our last stop here on earth.

Marriage is never easy, it takes two people who work hard to help one another achieve their dreams and goals for this I am grateful to GOD and my hubby Scott of twenty-two years. We enjoy our 5th wheel as it is a free life, less time to clean and more time to play. If we did not have a strong marriage and GOD to guide us give us faith this would be a journey that would be most difficult, with GOD in Jesus Christ name nothing is impossible. We have learned that you really do not need much to enjoy life, stuff is just stuff! You need a loved one your health, shelter and time to dance in your mind. I say in your mind as the screws in my pelvis do not authorize me to dance anymore, I am truly screwed down, locked down tight in my pelvis, cant twist, bend and still I suffer from pain and numbness in my feet almost five years later.

Living in the 5th wheel has provided us with freedom. We find more time to enjoy one another, the farm, the Olympic Mountains, ocean, rivers and of course all of our animals. Most importantly the flat land is a rehabilitation spot for me as I walk everywhere on the farm as it is flat. Animals are GOD’s angels sent to heal our souls so never abuse your pet, and always be grateful each and every day. As tomorrow what you had today could be gone forever. Life is fragile and precious, if you have your health you are rich beyond measure. I miss my health each and every day and continue to pray the pain will go away. Five years on April 13, 2015 since the semi-truck accident.

All of our eight equine are so relaxed and happy, this makes me and hubby beyond happy. We have two horses (mares), two standard rescue donkeys no paperwork, one Mammoth donkey Rio Johnson, and three minis.

I am happy to report I can now ride easier, train again and enjoy walking again as our property is mostly flat. Less rain makes it easier for me to move and the more I move the better I feel. If you have recently suffered from trauma I just want to say to you to trust Jesus Christ and never give up. No matter how bad the pain, never give up. My marriage has never been stronger and I am grateful to Jesus Christ for my husband of twenty-two years Scott. Scott is not only my better half he is my best friend. If we can only have one best friend in our entire life this is indeed a blessing but to get to marry our best friend this is a gift from Jesus Christ. I am so grateful for my life and husband. Trying to survive this thing called life without JESUS CHRIST and my husband would be indeed very difficult. Living with a life long disability is not easy and yet here I am working on my second year of running my new business a world-wide educational equine business for all donkey, horse and mule owners. GOD is amazing, never give up!

Iron Sharpens Iron

Donkey Whisperer Farm, LLC:


I have learned when I give up control, lay down on the floor and cry in my mind or physically and tell GOD I quit trying to fix this mess he steps in and takes over. Why? GOD wants us to acknowledge him and ask for his help then and only then will he send the right desires of our heart and open closed doors. All of the dreams we each have were planted at birth. NEVER GIVE UP, TRUST GOD IN JESUS CHRIST NAME for everything! 2015 is going to be your best year if you let GOD drive your life.


I have learned I can dance in the middle of the storm in my mind hard to dance physically with screws in my pelvis. I can smile and laugh and it feels oh so good and this is all due to GOD’s gifts nothing to do with me, nothing at all. I give 100% of my life to Jesus Christ as without him I will wither away and rot in depression. Dance with Jesus is real I know as I have suffered but I have also danced with Jesus. I pray this re-blogged post brings you peace. Remember to spend quality time with GOD he is wants us to ask for help on driving, going to the store, staying calm, our health, ,marriage and much, much more. GOD bless you and your family two and four-legged! Melody

GOD loves his children and he authorizes pain and suffering to his children for a short time and then GOD in Jesus Christ name brings justice for his children.  When GOD steps in everything changes and people will have no doubt it was GOD as no man can do what GOD can do.

No human can really understands life as GOD is in control not us.
