I had the BEST Mother’s Day possible!! First it was a warm beautiful sunny day which is very unlike the Pacific NW for May. Paco and I started out down the driveway and were stopped by my lovely husband wanting to take a picture. You’ll see in the pic Paco is bitless, wearing Old Mac Boots and I’m riding in my Wintec All Purpose English saddle. I wear a bicycle helmet, hell I’m not gonna pay outrageous prices for a helmet – if it’s good enough for bicyclists on asphalt it’s good enough for me and let me tell you this helmet has saved my head more than a few times.
Off we went to run the hills that stretch over 100 miles just across the street from where we live. The forest speaks so warmly when Paco and I enter. I high- five the trees, stroke the moss and tear up as I’m overwhelmed with the beauty, the peace and welcome feeling I get from all who live in the forest. Paco goes wherever I ask as I drop my reins and ride through feel. My arms dance above me in mudras swaying and intertwining in the air as I praise and sway loving all that surround me.
I am so very very blessed to be living my dream of mountain life, horses at my home, a beautiful barn, covered arena and above all a husband who supports me in every way he can by taking care of the horses 24/7 while I work my 5 am to 5 pm job mon-fri. It wasn’t supposed to be this way, Ken having to support my dream while I had to go back to the corporate world, but there he is managing manure and feeding horses 4 times a day because of my dream. I could not be more blessed. One day I will be back at the barn 24/7 and he will be back to his dreams 100%. In the meantime we love each other, work together to make a beautiful life and I could not be happier (except more joy to come when I’m working from home again supporting dear ones with Fibromyalgia and working with horses).
With great love, peace and verve
