Although it is heartbreaking and I send my condolences and hugs, we must also keep in mind that we should not to allow the loss of any life, man or beast, overcome the gratitude we should feel for having been allowed to have that living being in our lives to begin with, for however short amount of time it was. I hope their grief period is short and the wounds in their hearts heal quickly.
"I decided I am going to live, or at least try to live, the way I want,
with dignity, with courage, with humor, with composure."
Thank you to Gail and everyone. It is truly amazing how much they mean to us and how quickly something can happen. Reminds me to love and appreciate our horses each day AND enjoy and appreciate the process with each horse. Goals are important and necessary, but each day of the process should be enjoyed.
Thanks again for your kind thoughts as I struggle through this time.
