A loving tribute to my parents who met 65 years ago today! Thank you for your LOVE!
What is it they say? A photograph is a thousand words... or more!
Happy 65 years!
Sonny Ford passed away today. I didn't realize the importance of my photographing him while he gave a demonstration of riding, and of learning, from my farrier Doug Eidenier. I did a photo shoot of them, and I have to tell you, I didn't even know Sonny. You will, though, see from this photograph, what a wonderful,
WONDERFUL man he was!
I wished I knew him more than this photo shoot. You can tell from the photo he was
Here's to you Sonny, you have earned HEAVEN!! LOve you! But, miss you so much!!
Horses are herd animals. This means, they are more comfortable to be with another horse! They feel safe in a group. Security. Looking at this photograph I almost missed something. Do you see it? The rider and her strong arms in the mouth of the horse, tension on the bit. The neck curved. Painful to this horse? Probably!
You don't see it, do you? Ok, take a look right below this horse's brow band (right below the ears) and to the right. Ah, you see it now. Another horse going through the same routine. Do you think this gives this horse comfort?
Horses have the uncanny sense that can communicate at a distance. They can take EVERYTHING in. Love and friendship are forever. Even if it is across the riding course. They see all.
Maybe, they have never met the other horse, but there is DEFINITELY compassion.
I am so blessed to have horses in my life. Their love fulfills me every day, and I will never take that for granted.
I wish people were more
and always will be.
my horse Nugget. He will forever be in my heart, and soul. He was a treasure. He, was also, beautiful!
I apologize for the blog comments on my two horse's that are now in heaven. Beau and Nugget. But, I know, that for healing, I need to write about them. It helps me.
Love doesn't ever die. Not even in death. I hope that you have never experienced a love one passing. They will always be on your mind, and I hope, that when I pass, that I will be on someone's mind too.

Green green I'm going away to where the grass is greener still
I believe that life can be tough. I believe that this is not heaven on earth. So, we have awful things happen to us here. You know the saying, "earn your heaven on earth." Luckily, heaven, is eternal.
You wouldn't even believe the trials I have lived in the last three weeks (actually now). Love is loving someone or your horse enough to let them continue to be a horse, or pass on, to keep their mind (as my husband did!). In honor of my husband George's birthday tomorrow, I wish everyone, EVERYONE, to put the small things that bother you away. Look at who you love with a new respect, and forget the conflicts. Love them for TODAY.
Embrace your day with a new beginning. Even though we have troubles, we were meant to have them! That is life, and we are to take them ON! Again, life here is not our heaven. Our eternal heaven is to come.
I didn't post the below on FB, but maybe I should have.
I am sure you have heard of the spouse that passed because their love of their life, has passed.
You can't live, without their love.
Nugget, didn't. The stress that came over him after Beau passing brought on four diseases within five days. His will to live was nothing. Yes, I am not sure how I am alive. Horrific is the word.
They are buried side by side. They loved, and their eternal love, is forever.
