Celebration of Spring, Living and Special People

Hi Friends,

Winter is trying but failing to hold on for yet another month. But, Spring is pushing it away and bringing with it a World full of new beginnings.

I love Spring and everything that comes with it. The smell of freshly mown grass, the first flower on the trees and the feeling that everything in your life is or could be new again. I get out more in the Spring and take long walks to clear my mind from all the junk the World throws at me. I really need my walks, as they allow me to get my weight down and to make my personallity half way tolerable.

Since we last chatted, we have picked up two new horses that are part of our family. Lady was the first coming to live with us a few weeks ago. Brenda is still getting her confidence up so she can be a regular trail partner. We also have Dually, that just joined us a week ago. he has an amazing personality and will be Brenda's immediate answer to Spring trail rides. So one of our new beginnings will be to ride the trails in Washoe Valley all Spring and Summer until we run out of trails. Then we will start from the beginning again.

Spring also brings with it the hope of a fun vacation, maybe some place sunny and warm and relaxing. We are working up plans now on how to spend some quality time with each other to recharge each others Spirits.

The last couple of days, I have been following the sad story on Twitter about a young man that will be loosing his young wife. It breaks my heart to read his posts as the story of their life together comes to a close. I have really been thinking about the time I have and how I spend it. I have thought about what life might be like without Brenda and I don't like that story much. So I am re-determined to make every day and every moment with Brenda a special memory. This year marks our 27th Anniversary, I can't wait to share the day with Brenda, laughing about the past and looking forward to the future. I read this quote yesterday and It really hit home. “If we spend our time with regrets over yesterday, and worries over what might happen tomorrow, we have no today in which to live.” I don't know who wrote but it really says a lot.

Share the time you have... and Love.
