I have been struggling a bit lately. Not just with the Stinker, but with work and life in general. But in light of the holiday tomorrow, I started thinking about all thing things I have going for me and I honestly don't have any reason to complain. Sure work sucks sometimes, but I have a job that lets me afford my pony, which makes me very happy. It is challenging (sometimes a little too much), but that is better than being bored out of my mind.
I am also incredibly lucky to have amazing people in my life. I have an amazing family and friends that are essentially family. While, I am far away, there is this amazing thing called a cell phone. I have wonderful barn people and amazing trainers (D and S). D may be far away, but she always makes time for me. And S busts her butt all day every day and always has a smile on her face.
I also have this amazing pony (just under a year ago). He may frustrate the hell out of me (this last week is a case in point), but I love him to death. I may call him a little Stinker, but he is such a fun horse. Crazy talented (if I figure out how to unlock it), tons of personality, and so willing. He is such an over achiever that it causes problems sometimes, but I love that he wants to try and cares enough to try to anticipate what I will want next. Not to mention he is super smart.
I hope everyone has an amazing Thanksgiving filled with good ponies, good food, and good people. Ponies obviously come first, because I have my priorities in line. ;)
PS I fixed one of the pictures and made it all out of whack for the order...oops blogger fail.
