The challenges of life
Right now my own personal challenges are to de clutter my tiny little house so that I can focus more on my art and work instead of worrying about what needs to be accomplished before I get to my art work. What hinders me now isn’t mental issues on letting go of things, now I’m ready to let go, but physically I’m not able to move about anymore. The challenges I faced when I was young were about handling the lives of sweet little ones, but that came easy as time moved forward.
Now after kids and dogs and horses, my body has decided to stiffen up and shut down on me. Pain is a constant reminder of my rough and tumble cowboy days, but I don’t regret them. It just gives me fond memories of all I went through to get here. I went through a lot.
I used to think I couldn’t handle having more than one child at a time.
Then I had two!
I used to think I couldn’t handle more than two children at a time, God laughed and gave me another so I had three.
Then I thought Lord I couldn’t handle anymore children!
In Gods infinite humor and wisdom he smiled and gave me one more, number four!
Four sons all in a row, all good boys how I love them so!
If only God had seen fit to give me a horse before he gave me children, maybe I would’ve been a better mother. Everything I ever learned about being a better mother, I learned from my horses. If more people took lessons from horses, I guarantee there would be much more harmony in the world!
Our beginning was tough, life wasn’t easy, but lessons learned.
