I know for a fact I don't thank God nearly enough for the fact that I have two wonderful horses. Even if I did it all day it wouldn't be enough. Lately life has been spiraling around like a really bad "B" movie, making me ask myself "is this for real???". Last evening after driving to Owensboro and back to retrieve broken down truck I was spent. The dealership did fix the problem on the truck for a mere $750 and then when I went to start it, no go it was dead.....like two day old roadkill dead.
I went back in and they had the audacity to say and I quote "won't start huh? He thought he would have to jump you to get ya going." I will save you the explictatives and my response which may have came from gee I don't know, the fact that I had just paid $750 to fix my truck or possibly the steriods I am taking for this mystery throat issue. Either way, people backed away and shrunk in my presence AND they fixed the truck for another $250 dollars. While this was going on, my van at home decided to blow a water pump and had to be towed to the dealer for overheating.
I am smiling!!! Needless to say, when I arrived home at dark walking back to greet my horses through the snow I needed something nice.
Harley greeted me with a big whinny and Tank slowly nickered and pawed at the gate letting me know he wanted into his warm stall. I spent a half hour talking to them and freezing my underdressed self but it was worth it. I swear these animals help me put it all in perspective, I can't control everything and I don't have to. Someone once said to me this quote and I wish I knew where it originated but here goes:
"Life is 10% what is handed to you and 90% of how you react to it"
I guess I need more work in the reacting part , hey I am only human....
