Our New Reality

sanctuary sunrise

Good morning my friends. Early this morning, I wrote to a friend of ours that today feels like the day that our new reality becomes lucid. It’s the first day without coordinating logistics and post mortem exams and the first day that we won’t see Guida’s beautiful face. Clearly, today started with a heavy heart.

Then, while out with the critters, I turned to the east to see a light in the sky that was unique among the familiar and always magnificent sanctuary sunrise. At this moment everything changed. This is our new reality. The one where Guida’s light shines upon all of us, where her spirit has no limits, and where at any given moment we can think of her, and we can feel her joy and hear her sweet rumbles.

Guida, our hearts will always smile as we carry with us the eternal gratitude for having shared our united journey.

    This is such a hard time, but you still see the love and beauty in what you are doing and those wonderful creatures. Guida is always in everyone’s hearts. Thank you for being there for her – animals are very smart and know when they are loved. Guida knew this. We will miss her terribly but will never forget her.

    Guida, lovely leader, will be very missed. Love to all of you from Mexico, with a heavy heart but with the joy of knowing she died free, peaceful and loved.
