Hi there,

I don’t like cliches. I don’t like to hear people say “ When it rains it pours” or to hear “ Things happen in threes” I think that our thoughts create our future and so I always tell people to make sure that they choose the good ones.

I’m always searching for gratitude and trying to find life lessons and rise above all negativity. Some days are harder than others and today… well, it’s been a tough day at River Lane Ranch.

Late last night my staff member Vanessa got a call that she needed to fly home to Halifax to say goodbye to her Dad. The flight was booked for today for her to leave, but Vanessa woke up to one more bout of bad news. Her car was stolen. Can you believe that? What was the Universe trying to say? What was the lesson?

I secretly wondered if Vanessa, when she mapped out her life before she came here, had chosen this as a distraction to not have to focus on every minute and every hour leading up to her flight, wondering if she would make it home before her Dad passed. Instead she’s been so busy filling out police reports and being focused on being angry at the person who stole her White Mitsubishi Lancer Sportback (just in case you see it.) to focus on her Dad crossing over.

To add to this, we’ve recently been down one admin staff, as Bri has moved on and we’ve been in the process of hiring a new one. “No problem” – Tamara and I said last night. Vanessa needs to be with her family. We got this! We had a team meeting this morning and came up with a plan. I don’t know a lot of the ins and outs behind the scenes to upload readings, make website changes and the long intricate list of things my amazing team does, but I’m sure I can figure it out.

Then… about an hour ago another call came. Tamara got word that her Dad was in an accident and is critically injured.

My first thought: Is this really happening right now? It was a no-brainer. I have been in this situation with my Mom, my health, and my children. I learned a very valuable lesson that will stay with me forever. Life. It happens. The Universe has taught me many, many times that life is a series of tsunamis and we just need to learn how to surf!CLOSED

That being said. I currently am the only one in this office, sitting at the main desk. You could hear a pin drop. I said a little prayer for both Tamara and Vanessa, who are like family to me and I knew just what to do.

For the first time in 5 years of owning and operating River Lane Ranch. The office is closed for 10 days to heal. 

I apologize if you have a reading with me. It will likely be moved. I apologize if you are waiting on a audio reading. It will likely be late. Marley and I will be doing some work behind the scenes and our best to handle as many 911s as we can, but in the meantime, please say a little healing prayer for two amazing women who are part of this team and put so much into what they do. Take a deep breath, have patience and trust that This Too Shall Pass.

All my love,

Carmel Baird
