Life continues

Mari Lalana is a compassionate lady who lives life to its fullest with an indomitable attitude, a spirited sense of humor, undying passion, and a deep seated love for life.  Everyone who crosses her path has quickly come to see that she loves fiercely, and they feel blessed to have her in their lives.  Her presence fills the room with warmth and a sense of coming home. She is one of those rare person who you meet and brings you into her heart and, every moment spent with her leaves you feeling better about yourself, the world and humanity. Mari radiates pure love, whether it be for people or animals or the trees that grace her landscape. She is a walking embodiment of her belief in love, kindness and living with a generous heart.  This woman is a visionary and a breath of life to everyone who she offers her time. 

Mari embraced her dream life by starting Small Blessings Retreat and Animal Ministry (http://smallblessingsanimalministry.com).  She aids in life coaching and learning with the help of three miniature horses and three mini donkeys.  She started this business last year, and effortlessly seems as though she has been doing it her entire life.

On September 9th, Mari experienced the sudden loss of her husband of 40 years. Since this wonderful lady has given so much of herself to everyone, I would like to give her something back and help her and her family through this tough time, and relieve some of the financial burden that she is facing right now.  Mari has many four legged creatures to feed, as well as herself to care for, along with rent to keep her business running.

This woman lives big, loves big, and grieves big.  She is selfless and has touched many lives; she may never fathom just how deeply she has touched those around her just by modelling what it is to be a beautiful human being.33030046_1537160147285159_r.jpeg
