January is a convenient time to take stock of our lives. Today was a good day for that because it was too snowy to do anything except spend some time brushing my horse. The falling snow put a hush on the scene, blocking the normal man-made noises that you can usually never get away from in NJ. It was peaceful. PJ enjoyed the attention as I curried all of his itchy spots. I enjoyed the smell of hay as he breathed, and the feel of his nose nudging my back as I picked out his feet. I thought about how lucky I am.
I am grateful that I have a life that allows me to have a horse. I hope this year that I can be a better horseman, rider, and person. I have high hopes for me and PJ, but if I don’t meet my goals, I hope that I can stop myself from being disappointed. I have no reason to be dissatisfied because I have so much that is good in my life.
Here’s to achieving all that you want and getting all that you need in 2011.
