Hey Hay 

⚠️ #EmotionalPostAlert 🚨

I was 8 when my uncle ran over my rescue dog 🐶 Shaky. 

At 41 years old, I still remember what he looked like.

I also still remember crying myself to sleep because James, my uncle, didn’t have the decency to get him out of the road where he hit him with the truck.

I saw him when I got home from school that afternoon.

All my life I’ve valued life.  That’s one of the reasons I’ve connected with people like @greatlife_teens and @markdriscoll I see the same thing in them that’s in me with that regard.

So meet Penelope, Penny for short named by our youngest son @therealjoshua.williams 

Penny is a 12 or so year old mare that we’ve recently rescued.

She bit my bahonkas the first time I went to grab her front drivers side hoof the other night

It still hurts 😩😂😂

Note to self - don’t turn your back on Penny ✔️ 

#cruelty is something we don’t tolerate much of.

If you’re in a relationship or know of someone or something getting abused, please reach out and message me

Everything we do with the nonprofit @lifethatcounts is to help people make better decisions for more healthy outcomes 

Getting out of an abusive situation can be a difficult thing- but it’s worth it and we’re here to help

Godspeed!
-John

“Tough times don’t last, tough people do.”

The idea of tough as emotionless and completely stoic is over rated.

The last 10 years has brought war, terrorism, violent acts of nature, masses losses in the financial sector and housing markets, and so much more hurt, pain, and devastation. 

Now, there’s so much more to be thankful for, after all - we’re still here!

BUT - what if you don’t want to be....”still here.”

Life on planet earth is hard. We’re an imperfect messed up lot of people.  For all our imperfections though, we can still show love and we still have so much value.

If you’re reading this - I want you to know that you are loved and you are of great worth. 

Yes, life can be really tough and it can knock you down, but you can get through this.  You can keep getting right back up. 

You may not see it now, but every time you get up, you’re building resiliency.  You’re learning things you didn’t know before.  You’re getting better.

You’re enough for the moment in front of you.  You’re enough for the next challenge life throws your way. 

Do not be afraid.  Do not be down hearted.  You’ve been given the spark of life.  It’s a sacred thing.  It’s a beautiful thing and the Giver of spark is going to keep you shining on.

You’re only command - Do not give up!

YOU’RE. ENOUGH.

With Hope!
John
