Joy and happiness are wonderful feelings to experience, but are very different. ... Joy comes when you make peace with who you are, why you are and how you are, whereas happiness tends to be externally triggered and is based on other people, things, places, thoughts and events............................................................................................................. “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.

✨G R A T E F U L✨ ... and exhausted. 😉
Drinking NingXia + Kombucha from my new mug this morning and reflecting on how grateful I am to be in this place. In this season. With these people.
Have you ever wondered where you would be if the choices you made were different I do sometimes.
Then I look at where I am and I know I am exactly where I am meant to be.
And I’m insanely grateful.

Electricity out for a couple of hours last night. It was nice to cozy up to the fireplace with everything still in the house except the Corinthian Bells making music on the porch. It’s like God was saying, stop and be still, and you shall find peace. #peace #quiet #fireplace #corinthians #homesweethome #fireplacefun

Beautiful baby Luna 💗😍💗
. 🐂Luna- After weeks of battling to get Xrays taken, because we had been told time and again it wasn't necessary. Then "forgotten" for a further 3 weeks, despite nearly daily phone calls asking for a visit. We finally know why Luna was unable to stand. She had broken part of her rear leg. The culcaneal tuberosity, and part of the ankle ( the weird lumpy bit that sticks out on the back leg) Because this had been left untreated for approximately 4 months prior to her being relinquished to our sanctuary, the bones had started to heal. This has caused a fusion in her ankle and the tendons are now attached abnormally to the bone. Although the fracture remains unstable, we have been advised not to cast it as this will cause further damage to her tendons and may result in the loss of her leg. 🐂Our treatment plan continues as has been the case since she arrived. She is on painkillers both via injection and externally. She has her tendons massaged and manipulated 3 times a day while she is hoisted. We encourage her to bear weight with the support of the sling. She has compresses applied everyday, alternating between cold and hot. She is fed the highest quality hay, with cereals morning and evening. Her vitamin and mineral block is always nearby as is any human at the sanctuary with an extra 5 minutes to spare. 🐂She is exceptionally loving and gentle and exceedingly patient with us as we manoeuvre her body around. She takes up around 4 hours of our day, just for her needs. She has all her pressure areas washed and creamed and as she is prone to prolapse her anus remains laced. This is washed and disinfected twice a day. We hope as does the vet that the longer she is able to weight bear the prolapse will resolve. VIA @BIG_V_SANCTUARY_
