As the Year Turns
I want to thank everyone who has allowed me to give voice to their animals and facilitate healing for them in 2012. Without your trust in my abilities, I would not be able to help heal the human-animal bond. I also want to thank everyone who has purchased both of my books this past year. The comments I receive on how my words have helped enrich your lives is worth far more than any income derived from them.
I was pleased to mail checks yesterday to the three charities that a portion of the proceeds from Tales are being donated to: my local Humane Society, Noah’s Wish, who helps animals during disasters, and The Wild Horse Sanctuary in Shingletown, CA.
As always, the year just completed was filled with highs and lows. Unfortunately, it ended with the lows of the devastation suffered from Superstorm Sandy and the senseless loss of life in Sandy Hook Elementary. My belief that everything happens for a reason and always in our highest good is truly challenged by these types of events, but deep within I know it’s a Universal Truth. The only way these terrible occurrences can make any sense is if the lessons being presented are learned; and there are always lessons.
My wish for each and every one of us is that the Year 2013 is a one of possibility, potential, prosperity, perfect health, and love for all life, whether it be human, animal, plant, mineral, water, or Mother Earth. I’m reminded of the words that Chief Seattle spoke to the government in 1854, “All things are connected. Whatever befalls the earth befalls the sons of the earth. Man did not weave the web of life; he is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself.” How much longer dare we wait to truly hear the wisdom uttered so long ago. I hope that 2013 is the year we all begin to treat everyone and everything with the love & respect each deserves.
HAPPY NEW YEAR with much LOVE & GRATITUDE,
Nancy, Hana, Saba, & Stormy
