“To many, the words love, hope, and dreams are synonymous with horses.”
On this day in 1996, a small grey mare officially came into my life, fulfilling one dream, and starting us down the path of so many more.
We’ve shared 22 years of dreams, frustrations, hope, heartbreak, teaching, and learning. (We know who’s the teacher and who’s the student. The teacher isn’t the one making a blog post, since she lacks the fingers necessary to type on a keyboard.)
And above all, love. Patience, compassion, understanding, wisdom. A soft mane to cry on, even if you really don’t like being cuddled. A tolerance for my fussing and the fact I sometimes see you as my own personal living, breathing “My Little Pony.” And it’s sometimes involved glitter.
Happy Gotcha Day, Mimi!!
