Every dark night, brings a new day

I sit here in tears right now, just as I have all week listening to this song now at least 736 times (click below to listen)

I have been sitting at these 2 computers now for the last week, countless hours each day between volunteering at the Beinheirt Hofgut ranch, training 3 hrs per day and meeting new sponsors.

I sit here in tears right now, just as I have all week listening to this song now at least 736 times while gathering and editing HOURS of footage and 100’s of pictures for my social media launch on Jan 6th.

I;m sitting here thinking, what to post today and it dawned on me, why not share this beautiful song I’m working on editing, and share my tears with you.

Close your eyes for 3 minutes (or watch) and let your mind drift to a beautiful place..YOUR place of peace and happiness.

Take this time also as you listen, and think of your time over the holidays with your loved ones, your Christmas dinners and entering a new year.

Focus on what you have in your life today, smile and be grateful.

Song – With every dark night, brings a new day!

Sent with a smile,

Life is 10 percent what happens to YOU

“Life is ten percent what happens to you and ninety percent how YOU respond to it !!

I sincerely hope the start of your new year is as beautiful as the sun rises.

Today I showed up at the Beinhart Hofgut ranch, and the boss Gregoir says to me, “Yuk, what a shitty day, I hate the rain “.

I stood there, ankle deep in stank ass mud and horse shit, smiled and said, “Ahhh come on brother, without the rain, the trees wouldn’t grow and flowers wouldn’t blossom”.

I tilted my head back in the pouring rain, and thanked the universe for her showers, I smiled and say to him, “Next time you wake up and look outside and it’s raining and your first thought is, ah what a shitty day, then sure, you’ll most certainly have a shitty day”

No matter what the weather , tell yourself it’s a beautiful, and enjoy what you’re given,  one more day on this earth as a human,  and yeah, even the rain!

Life is what we make of it ,,,one step, one day at a time.

WHISTLER, British Columbia — The blame game on what caused the death of a young slider from the Republic of Georgia escalated Thursday when the head of the country’s Olympic committee placed responsibility for the accident on the organizations that built the world’s fastest track.

“I exclude the possibility that Nodar (Kumaritashvili) was not experienced enough,” president Giorgi Natsvlishlili said in a televised interview. “From my point of view, the track was at fault.”

Statistics provided by the track show that in the 30,477 runs of the luge, bobsled and skeleton that occurred prior to the Olympics, there were 340 instances of rollovers that required medical attention.

Blood from Kumaritashvili’s head wounds trickled over the fingers of Terrance Kosikar as the medic, firefighter and snow patroller gave the luger mouth-to-mouth.

“I was just doing my job,” Kosikar would say later
