|Happy Valentines Day
The month begins with a sense of relief...our family has been blessed by good fortune and good health, but like most of you, we have had a family member recently diagnosed with cancer. Because it was caught early in my husband, we are expecting him to recover from his surgery with no trace of the disease.
The most important part of his recovery was the support he received from his close family and friends, including my friends at Whispering Willow who offered their prayers and words of encouragement.
While this is not the first time our family has had to deal with a health scare, it was a new experience for me as a wife and best friend to the love of my life. Like a lot of scary things in life, I felt like I was entering
and decided to blog about the similarity to what horses experience when faced with the unknown. We learn so much from past experiences and are able to handle our fears with the love and support of others. Each of us has a connection with one another in this life and it is that connection that allows us to feel less vulnerable in the moments when we face fear and uncertainty. I am so glad to have my human and equine friends to keep me grounded and to remind me of the importance of reaching out to others in my life.
It is also the month to remember that we are all loved by someone and we should take time the to tell our VALENTINES how much they are loved! Come share your love with our four legged friends at Whispering Willow Ranch.
See you around the barn,
