It's been a wild, awesome year.
In January or February, John noticed an unrest in me. Always wanting me to be happy, he encouraged me to do what I have wanted to do for a long time, ... start up a therapeutic riding facility.
I prayed a lot. A lot more than I think I ever have. I asked for signs. Now I know that God is not always going to give signs, ...One needs to have faith. But I asked for signs anyway! And they came. any time I was unsure, plop.... a sign would fall into my lap. At least that is what it felt like.
At Easter, I prayed that this was not about ego. That it was truly what I was supposed to do. The very next day, Michael Speciale, my now realtor called me to determine what my needs were. Turns out he is retired Air Force. He immediately thought that this sounded like it would be very therapeutic for soldiers coming back from Afghanistan and Iraq. I laughed (thank you God!) as this is Horses for Heroes and yes it is very therapeutic for these brave men and women who are coming back changed to a life that has continued to move forward without them!
