I Have to be Good at This

There are some things that are so intrinsic to my nature that I can't imagine that I wouldn't be good at it. I HAVE to be good at it. It would be unthinkable to not be good at it because it would invalidate the reason for my existence.

I HAVE to be a good mom/grandmother. I HAVE to take good care of Mac. I HAVE to be a good steward of my land. Other people get that about me. What they don't get is why, especially at my age, I have to feel so strongly about horses. The answer is .... I don't know. But I remember being nuts for horses around the same time as being toilet trained. I know, first memories are strange and random, aren't they? Anyway, the point is, horses are such a part of me that I HAVE to be good with them. They are woven into the tapestry of my nature.

I have been given the opportunity to help out with two, two day clinics running back to back. Four days of HORSES!! Four days of trying to get good with them. I'm excited, a little scared. Really thankful.

I leave in about ten minutes..... I hope I don't barf.
