Looking into the eyes of a child refreshes my soul. As I allow Lil’ L’s beautiful Light to shine on me, a space of love is created that enables me to quiet my mind. This changes the way I look at myself --- the sadness, the judgment, the guilt, the anger --- all the fears are swept away and only my true self remains. I feel so much better when I like myself. Seems so simple, but one of the biggest revelations I have had here healing on The Farm.
In the fall of 2011, Mike and I moved to a small farm in Central Illinois where we immediately found ourselves rescuing horses. The rescue was not part of our original plan, but we felt the calling while doing a search for a pair of ponies we did plan on caring for on the farm. Since childhood, my entire extended family and I have been horse owners. Mike and I wanted to continue this tradition. Upon searching the internet for a pair of ponies, we were overwhelmed with the number of horses that needed a rescue and/or a home.
