We can get through anything if we have someone to share it with.

I have a confession to make. I’m not much of a Bad Ass, however I do on occasion have a BAD ASS DAY. Hopefully that doesn’t surprise you.
Several weeks ago I was having one of those bad ass days. Everything was poised to fall into place, and it wasn’t, ugh. By the end of the day I was almost in tears tending to my adorable donkeys telling them my tale of woe. As I removed the fly mask from my white donkey’s eyes I noticed he had a single tear in his right eye, startled I looked at my brown donkey, and she had a single tear in her right eye. I burst into tears. They had been listening, and added there tears to mine, or so it felt.
Granted the donkeys tears might have been due to the heat, the dust, the flies but for me that day they were lending their ears to hear my story, and share the burden. And well I felt better after that, and the next day the pieces started to drop into place.
The pieces not falling into place, feeling burdened? Contact me, you talk, I’ll listen.

  1. Nice!
    I went into the pasture in tears with stress one day. We have 9 horses. They came and surrounded me and all touched my face. My two closest “put me in the cradle” between two horses when they groom each other. Animals are intuitive and kind and wise. We have much to learn from them.
