If you read my last blog entry about “hate ” you will understand this “follow up”.
Olivia, my daughter started to learn how an organization works behind the “scenes.” She was learning more about how to rescue animals, and also how to promote a campaign. How to receive help from others, and how to collect donations.
There are numerous of kind people out there that truly want to rescue animals, but don’t realise (many times) the tough work. All the free hours that are put in volunteering every day. Well, I wanted to teach/educate her together with my son Max, about the wonderful and also difficult situations it means to run an organization.
Together we started, “Olivia rescue Horses Campaign”.
Little would we have known, and understand, that some people could be rude and make false accusation about her work. –You can read all about it in the last blog entry–
Olivia became very sad, and I could saw her energy going down. As a mother, you want to protect your children, like a momma bear.
Amazingly, there were many people that read my words, wrote back and made beautiful comments about Olivia, and her work with the horses. Me the Momma Bear, got very happy emotional and very thankful to all you that wrote with love to her (and me).
I read them all for Olivia.
We talked about it if we would let these negative people have power over us.
Olivia thought for a minute, and then said, “Mom, no one should quiet any actions made out of Love.”
I couldn’t agree more, and I am so proud of her, that she feels that strongly in her heart and mind. Of course, I will support her all the way, however, Momma Bear will take a (small) step back.
Yesterday, I and Olivia went to a polo horse stable to meet Julia a 16-year-old polo-horse. Again we heard the soul whisper, “I am someone!” I cannot describe the feeling of meeting a soul that is tired, their mind is tired, their body is tired. But I recognize the feelings.
It is heavy!
Right away, Julia felt comfortable with Olivia and rested her head in Olivia’s arms. Gently, Olivia kissed Julia above her eyelid. “I see you!” she whispered back to the beautiful soul.
A vibrate moment of peace occurred in the stable.
Some people might ask me, why rescue another horse when the founds are coming slowly for the other Animals?
Its not an easy answer, since it is a feeling I have inside of me since my childhood. Several of you know me and my history, and some of you have read my books where I mentioned my tough childhood. How I as a child, many times had to visit the hospital due to being abused.
I was being badly abused for years.
No one dared to stand up for me and speak, to end my horrible situation. I still can recall the feeling when the persons in my life looked at me with sad guilty embarrassed eyes, and then walked away. I was totally alone.
Your brain stops working. You are going on half energy to survive, not to be able to remember. The same with Animals in stress.
They called me dumb. I was absolutely not dumb, it was my defense mechanism, my brain had to disconnect to be able to survive. You are waiting to be saved. Like Animals.
Children and Animals we react the same.
This is why, I cannot walk away without at least try, and to beg YOU to help Julia to the retirement she so deserves. That we not only look at her picture with pitty but that we actually will do something together for sweet Julia.
Olivia and I cannot do this alone, let us become a team, and give Julia a wonderful retirement.
