There are a lot of things on my mind right now.
None of it horse related.
Just kind of in a funk.
The heat and humidity are making our sport as unbearable
as it is when there is snow and wind-chill factors.
Work is crazy busy right now
Which is good.
It makes the days go faster and really tests my skills.
I still work well under pressure.
I mourned for a friend who lost his father.
And I prayed for my sister’s husband
who faces heart surgery
after a heart attack while out fighting a fire.
He’s on the mend.
I’ve been disappointed recently in what I perceive
as the right and the wrong way of doing something.
And it reminded me that if the outcome is the same
To take the kinder route.
I have been struggling with parenting again
And fear it is a lifetime battle.
When its good
It is very good.
(The picture in the previous post was all in fun.)
And when its bad;
It just sucks.
And through all of the above,
I appreciate the support of those friends
Who have let me lean on their shoulder
via phone, cyber space or in their company.
I have had this poem going through my head.
It goes something like …
“A time for hanging on and a time for letting go….”
It is not Ecclesiastes 3
or “Turn Turn Turn”
My sister and I use to collect poetry
Or “sayings” as we called them.
I know this was in our collection,
but she can’t recall it either.
When I find it, I’ll share it.
But know the moment will have passed.
I think I need a road trip,
a little John Denver on the radio
and time in the saddle when I arrive
to get me back on track.
If weather breaks next week
I am so there.
I am already there.
