7 Days of Thanks (Day 6)

Today:
I’m thankful for my horse Lightning

We’ve come a long way from a little girl who had no clue what she was getting into and a chestnut pony without any spots, lol! But over the past ten years The Lord has certainly brought us far, and I can’t wait to see where He will take us next!

We’ve driven cattle,
Climbed trails,
Overcome unimaginable fears and difficulties,
Made a cross-country move,
Ridden in rain, snow, and suffocating Heat waves...

    We’ve recovered from a bad fall that had a difficult consequence but an awesome Happily Ever After (click here for our story). And, this might sound funny to anyone who doesn't work with horses, but: my horse has taught me so much!

I’ve learned about discipline,
freedom,
and certainly patience.
(just to name a few)
Because horses tend to do that to you;
they'll show you sides of yourself that you didn't know you had.



 Lightning is very laid back
Sometimes
mischievous
Always hilarious
 And  I love him with all my heart.

So today: I’m thankful for my horse Lightning.

Alrighty then, what about you? "So what are you thankful for?" Go ahead, share your thoughts and don’t forget to be right here, tomorrow, on Nutmeg, tomorrow afternoon, right here, for the final day of:
7 Days of Thanks!!
