Giving Thanks

I can't tell you how lucky I am to have the people I have in my life. And that includes the Blogger/Wordpress crew as well. You all make a huge difference in my life and I hope you know that.

I'm not a huge holiday person but only because, like I'm sure a lot of you out there, I have a very low tolerance for my family. Me? Low tolerance? Low patience level? What? How could this be!

I just can't.

I started off real early... 4:30 am to be exact. Took care of the pup I'm staying with, grabbed a coffee at my favorite coffee shop, rushed across town and took care of the most adorable ponies ever, stopped at cleaned the schoolie barn at a local equine facility, and headed back to the house I started at to shower up for Thanksgiving. Luckily through "Happy Thanksgiving" messages, Lauren from My Life With Charlie stated Starbucks was open. Coffee #2? Definitely thinking ahead.


I made it about 20 minutes with the family... Even before the rest of them actually showed up. How awesome was it that at that moment I looked out and Brantley was finishing his lunch. Yes, my Mom's house is right next to the barn I keep Brantley at and I can basically see him from the kitchen. You'd think that'd be pretty awesome right? Hahahahaha.

I had about 30 minutes before they showed up. I really wanted to just throw on a vest and hit the trails but I knew that I would be on the shit list. So? Mini jump session? Oh hell yeah. Definitely took the edge off. If you can't drink away the anxiety... Ride it out.

Right when I was finishing up the rest of them showed up and my aunt and uncle came up with their little girl. It was nice to see them. I can't believe how much Brantley loves kids.


Made it through dinner before I had to go back to work. Food was good and I ate like a Marine before anything else happened. I ran up to the barn for a few more needed pony kisses.


I am so thankful to have him.
That hole in my heart will never be filled but he's squeezed his way in there 
and just made more room.
With my head in the clouds and his feet on the ground, there's nothing we can't do.



Need to get out there again tomorrow with the boys.
I miss Chevy when I'm away at other houses... Definite could use that snuggle tonight.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

I was very lucky to have that and I'm starting to think I should give up on doing the family thing and just have consistent Friends-giving and Christmas parties... Without them ahaha

Oh man, there's been so many times that I wanted to sneak away from the family and ride on the holidays. Glad that you could get some horse time in.

One reason I love working holidays... They don't know if I'm actually working or if I snuck out for a trail ride.
