November is one of my favorite months. I start the month with my birthday which is always fun! And its the month of THANKSGIVING!!! While Christmas remains my most favorite holiday I LOVE Thanksgiving because we celebrate all that is good in our lives...food, family, the wonderful things that have happened throughout the year.
This Thanksgiving I feel especially thankful. It goes without saying that I am thankful for my family's health and we've been able to make it through the year without any major health or life crisis. But its been a big year on the "horse-y front" for me as well.
In March I decided to branch out on my own and start my own lesson program. Its small but growing and slowly gaining more students. I can only begin to imagine what next year will bring.
Also in March we welcomed "Libby" into our animal family. She has been simply lovely since then and we couldn't have asked for a more wonderful animal to bless our lives.
This past summer was fun with some local shows and all three of my daughters really grew in their riding skills. Danielle & Aliya began learning to canter and Skylar had some consistant success at the local hunter/jumper shows we attended.
Then in September, I had to opportunity to move into Winfal Farms in Mokena and start the boarding side of my business as well as grow the lesson program. WHAT LUCK!!! It has been a wonderful experience and I love everyday that I am out there with the horses. I finally feel like my horses are getting the care they deserve and their health has never been better!!!
I also love that whenever they see me now they nicker and get so excited! Granted its because they see me as the "bringer of food" but it still warms my heart!
So this Thanksgiving, you can bet that I am counting my blessings and giving as much thanks as I can!
