I’m a Junkie!

I’m an information junkie … at least about the things I’m interested in. (-:

I’m going to a seminar soon. It’s not about horses. It’s actually about doing a better and better job online.

So, I’m excited!!!! I love to learn and it will be great fun to do something so different. I will also be around great minds. That’s always a treat.

Horses as Healers

A few weeks ago, I was honored to be a presenter at a National Conference for individuals serving veterans with an emphasis on those working with horses. The amazing and innovative staff at the Brave Hearts Therapeutic Riding and Education Center in Poplar Grove, Illinois have initiated this national event for the past two years.

Amazed Gratitude

As big as is possible to say THANK YOU, I am saying it to you now.

The reason is because everyone has been so amazing and I am grateful.

This past eight weeks ushered in a time in my life that we all experience … the loss of someone dear. For me recently, I said good-bye to my Mother and a close, dear girlfriend.

A Special Note

Towards the middle of June my mother, Marie became very ill.

She went on to a heavenly life on July 7th. She would have been 94 on July 27th.

My three sisters and my brother and I spent the last two weeks of her life with her and with each other. We spent hours and hours together … laughing, crying and reviewing all of our lives … and so many memories.

I am letting you know such personal news because I’ve been a bit out of touch.

Father’s Day

Here’s a picture of my Dad. He was quite a horseman. He and our Mom, Marie ran a 300-400 head horse business.

Dad was the son of a mule trader and learned the art of buying and selling very well.

If you bought a horse from Dad (and you had many to choose from) you could return it and trade it in for another at a later date! Now that’s a novel idea in these times.

Happy Springtime!

I have always loved roses! Just now they are beginning to bloom here in Texas. I so enjoy waking up to birds chirping and gorgeous blooms!

Because this winter has been so long and difficult in many areas of the country, Spring seems even sweeter this year.

First Love

Who was your first horse love? Mine was a sorrel cutting mare that I showed when I was about eight years old. Her barn name was Snake because she was so spooky! But Snake and I loved each other!

Love is always a choice. Even deciding to love what is not going our way is a choice. Loving the hard stuff can be like a treasure hunt because the hard stuff always has a great gift tucked away beneath the surface.

“Get Some Fireworks Going”

Happy New Year! I love this time of the year … it’s always a time of new beginnings. In the Personal Performance article I share some thoughts for you … perhaps a new, energizing, and ultimately productive way to replace “resolutions”. Let me know what you think.

Sharing Christmas Cheer

When I was growing up Christmas was a special with family.

Dad slowed down his busy life with our 400-500 horse ranch to enjoy Christmas traditions.

On Christmas Eve we opened presents and attended midnight mass to honor the birth of the baby, Jesus. I can still smell the incense.
