This was originally a lovely family photo which I sadly had to crop to include only yours truly. And the horse's behind. Someone should say something funny about that in the comments. I challenge you, Internet!
I spent the day watching my father and uncle unload hay and watching my children ride a pony. When I wasn't wondering why I wore flip-flops to go horse back riding (bad idea! You'll step in stuff! Lots of it!), I just sat in the shade of an old oak tree. And there was a good bit of time spent in a rocking chair on a big front porch. None of this was planned, but it was exactly what I needed. Sunshine is better than the warm glow of my computer screen, in person is better than on the phone, real life is better than television. I am better than I was. See me smile? It's been awhile.
