46 degrees right now!!! I am grateful for sun and some warmth...finally. I am grateful that I have a horse to go fuss over later today and ride. I love that we have been able to indulge our youngest daughter's passion over the years - first with lessons, then leasing horses for her, and then buying her a horse of her own. Sometimes I hear other teenagers tell her how lucky she is or people say things like, you must have lots of money...ha! L is quick to tell others that she doesn't have a fancy cell phone, video systems, expensive lap top , etc. She does have a basic cell phone - which she bought and a hand me down lap top from Dad. L realizes what is important in her life and I hope that is a life lesson that stays with her.
I dreamed of having a horse as far back as I can remember. Sometimes I still can't believe we now own 3. I so appreciate my understanding husband. So many women on the blogs I read have husbands / boyfriends that don't get it or basically don't like horses. I not only have a husband that willingly hooks up the trailer and hauls L and I to shows - he genuinly enjoys those 1200 lb money machines.
