“Raise your words, not your voice. It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder”
There will always be moments, especially as we navigate relationships of any kind, that bring frustration and pain born of fear. I have recently been experiencing this with my friend who is going through cancer which has now metastasized in his brain. He was a soldier in Vietnam. He has battled PTSD and addiction, and won! 35 years of sobriety is nothing to take lightly. He is a warrior, and he is in battle again. As his friend and caretaker I have to navigate the waters we are in very carefully. Balance. He is allowed his anger and frustration, and I am allowed to stand up and not let him direct those at me. It is with a soft voice that I bring him back to reality. Death is a part of the deal when we were blessed with the miracle of life. It is not something we can conquer. It is not something we should want to conquer. It too is a great blessing. What we have taken from life we get to give back to it in dying. Do not be afraid of this great gift. Go gracefully about your days giving to each one more than you take from it. Float on your whispers and rain your grace onto others. It is profound to give this, the biggest gift of all; Love. *********************************

And we have running spring water at the barn! Biggest hurdle for bovine incorporation in the next year is checked off the list. Who’s ready for some fencing projects and shelter construction? #grassfedbeef#1 .6galperminutebaby #bigdoins#changesonthehorizon
It was a week. A week of changes. Phase 2 of my program started and challenging is an understatement. I keep telling myself I can do this. And I will. Even if parts of my body hurt that I never knew could. #yougottabelieve I’m starting to see and feel real change. Not just in my body, but in life, too. #changesonthehorizon Stay tuned for what’s next...it’s really good✌🏻
Con el paso del tiempo las cosas y UNO van cambiando, a veces no es fácil adaptarse o aceptar esa transformación pero hay que hacerlo.
Conocernos, aceptarnos sin dejar de superarnos siempre, y que no nos importe la mirada externa y la de aquellos que nos quieren, con paciencia y amor, hacerles entender esta nueva persona que somos!!!!!
Vamos por más que siempre se PUEDE!!!! 😃💪🤩
I know its late, but with all of the #mommymode madness calming down, and my son finally getting his first dose of chemo; #gratitude has set in once again, and I just want to share my general optimism for the future.
Special #thankyou to My Family, Ive learned that invitation is not needed to show support. I am truly grateful to ALL of you that showed up despite our difference. Your prayers for Rico, your presence, your love, and support means everything. #whatFAMILYdo#tiredAF#hustlinghard#changesONtheHorizon .
