Spring Fling in January!

Happy Spring…in January! We have had nothing but freezing cold weather and lots of snow this Winter.  But, today it was a balmy 54 degrees!  Only in Michigan!  The piles of snow melted and I could see green grass and lots of mud! Regardless, the animals were extremely happy and full of spunk today…

The meeting! And a beautiful meeting it was!

Magic has been lost, ever since Velvet crossed over.  Today, she seemed truly happy.  Although the two were separated by fencing, Magic often had her head over Frodo’s fence to saying hello.  Both critters were relaxed and had a beautiful day together! This made my heart bubble with joy!

This past week has been extremely difficult, yet beautiful all at the same time. We said goodbye to a dear friend and welcomed a sweet new addition, to Indigo Acres.  Frodo has been a true gift, in so many unexpected ways.   I feel extremely thankful and blessed…

I spent much time with Frodo today.  I cried happy tears, while connecting with him in his stall.  I also cried tears of sadness, missing my old friend.  But, when I looked into his eyes, something magical happened…I was reminded of an old friend.  What an incredible gift…

I have a feeling 2018 is going to be a beautiful year at Indigo Acres!

Goodbye, My Friend…

Last night, I said goodbye to my sweet Velvet.  I knew her time was near, but deep down, I was still hoping for a miracle.

I know, in my heart, that I did everything I could to help her. At this time, I am unable to put my emotions into words.  My feelings seem to only flow as tears.  In time, I will share her final story and what a strong and loving companion she truly was.  During her final hours, she took care of my heart in so many beautiful ways…

Hug your special friend a little tighter today…

The Gift of Gratitude: Hope

Today celebrates Day 16 of my 31 Days of Gratitude: Hope

Yesterday was an extremely emotional day on the farm.  Velvet, our 21-year-old Morgan, has been having some health issues.  We have spent much time with our amazing farm vet, brainstorm what else we can try for this sweet and beautiful soul.  We have strong hopes that new medicine will be the answer we have been looking for.  Time will tell…

Velvet and I have a very special connection.  She has made a difference in my life, on so many levels, and has taught me many beautiful life lessons.  I am struggling putting my emotions into words right now and I apologize that this post lacks specifics…my heart is just hurting.  I am not ready to say goodbye to my very special friend…

I am thankful for hope…

Love Yourself…Embrace Yourself…Just Be You
