Make Time

It's been a week and a half since I've been out to the barn. It's been since August of 2011 since I've written a post to this blog. I'm not too sure what happens to the time, but I do know that I miss my horses very much. I'm very fortunate to be able to board my horses with capable people, so I don't have to worry about them, but still...I miss them. With a responsible work load, holidays, family get togethers, and the daily house chores, time easily slips away. So, my 2012 resolution is to make more time for my horses by learning to say, "No," more often to people, places, and things that sap my energy.

Time with my equine companions is important. I need to plan my days better so I can enjoy their   unconditional love, exuberance for life, and their need for socialization with me. I always feel energized and positive after spending time with my mares, setting the tone for the rest of the day.

The spirit of the horse is good for the soul.
