At my age, there are risks to riding horses. I hate to burst ones bubble, but there are risks at any age. Every time, I want to ride, there is someone chanting in my ear. Your going to get hurt, if! If what? If, I ride, I’m going to get hurt? Yep, I just might. However, crossing the street, I might get run over by a car. If I step off the curb, I might break an ankle. If I get in my car, someone might hit and kill me. Quite frankly, I get tired of the neigh-sayers. You know. Those negative nannies. Don’t do this, don’t do that. The ones who are always raining on your parade. We all have them.
As you well know, Jewels is my obsession. Some would say, it’s not a healthy relationship, and today, I threw caution to the wind. I rode Jewels. Without, anyone here at the house watching me. It gave me a feeling of accomplishment. Jewels and I, have worked hard for this very day. We’ve been through a lot together. She’s the shining light at the end of a tunnel. My gift from “God”. So, why not enjoy it? Let’s make today, the best day we have. We might not have another. I love you, Jewels!
