I survived! What do you know? Last weekend was absolute chaos...complete with standing on my feet for an average of 12 hours a day holding a very heavy camera/lens, interacting with people on a constant basis, about 4 hours of sleep each night, living in continual fear that the pregnant mares we brought along were going to have their babies at the show, having a great time, being blessed by so many people, and coming home with over 4,000 images.
I LOVE my camera and lens even more now...they handled the wacky indoor lighting like the champs they are!
Mom and Beamer were seriously impressive....brought home the blues!
Jessie enjoyed the show....despite her crutches! (BTW, we heard this past week that the Dr thinks she doesn't need surgery!! Praise GOD!)
And a good time was had by all!!
At this point, life is settling back down again, and the next big thing on our platter is the arrival of some new baby horses! Can't WAIT!! The first mare due is the mare I showed last year, so I'm especially excited ;)
Now that I've gone through all my pictures and organized everything, I'm slowly pulling my head back above water, and really want to keep sharing quotes. So in honor of my return to blogland, here's a deluge! :) :) :)
....especially Beethoven's Pathetique Sonata.
...I have to remind myself of this from time to time.
...actually, PETA might be right ;)
.....I had a shirt that said this on the back for the longest time. Then it disappeared. I have a strange feeling Mom threw it away :'(
.....yep! I've got friends like this.
.....okay, okay. The dog is cute, you have to admit!
.....guys, you know this one's your fav :)
.....which is why I want to MOVE! Summer is coming!! Aaaahhhhhhhh.....
......and in Him, we find the greatest satisfaction, the deepest fulfillment, and the truest joy.
God bless you all!! ♥ ♥
