I think, like everyone else in the blogging community, right now my heart and thoughts are with Lauren from She Moved to Texas Blog, in her time of need.
We all share a common bond in this little corner of the interwebz, which is the love of and dedication to the horse.
But we all have larger roles to play in life, Daughters, Mothers, Wives, Sisters, Employees, Friends, Co-workers, Co-boarders, Significant Others, what have you. And sometimes those roles can be complicated and difficult. Being a horse owner/rider/equestrian is only part of who we are.
Many of us face challenges outside of horses that are only hinted at - Medical Issues, Family Issues, Mental Health Issues.
Our common bond may be horses, but we are so much more than that, both as individuals and as a community.
I just wanted to take a moment to acknowledge that, whomever you are, no matter what your struggles, you are valued and you are not alone.
Life is hard. We ride horses.
