Personal Progress… (Yay!) and Justify…”Proving it beyond a shadow of a doubt ….he OWNS the Triple Crown”!!!

History made…and the Lord acknowledged for His blessing. So genuinely thankful, Justify did it….ALL THE WAY! What a great horse!

It’s enough to make you holler, which is exactly what I did while riding my Equicizer Winston…and watching the Belmont Stakes. It was quite the display.

It got so exciting I was jumping out of the saddle…and yes, I got a little misty eyed. I couldn’t help it, I’ve been following Mike Smith throughout this amazing journey to the Triple Crown. He loves his job, the horses he is blessed to ride, and he is so quick to give God the credit.

What a great guy!

Indeed, it’s proven that living a life of gratitude is healthier and provides much needed perspective. It helps you realize what matters most…not worrying about what we don’t have, but focusing on all the blessings we do have. Faith, family, friends, health…

(and frankly…if all I had was my faith I would be still be so blessed! Because I know God is GOOD! And I know the plans He has for me are good.

What are you grateful for?


I WAS SUPER EXCITED THIS WEEK…because when I had my riding lesson Wednesday there was a big double take moment from me and a “May I quote you?” statement that my trainer said about my ride. I said…”ummm….like for my blog”? She said “sure”…

Happy dance!

And another thing to be, er…um, thankful for…is the ability to totally change your mind and be seriously ok to go there. Like when you do a project, and then COMPLETELY redo it!

Yuppers, the kitchen backsplash I disliked for 15 years got redone. Twice.

(Poor hubby, he’s learned to just roll with these moments.)

The first redo was with paint. It was better, but…meh.

The second time…ooooh la la!

So much happier with it! A galvanized tin tile look….fits the log cabin decor, brightens and, well…its cool.

Just remember…measure twice, cut once. It was a breeze putting up. Really.

And speaking of easy…

Sometimes it’s just too hot to cook. Organic, healthy, cool and refreshing.

The best farmers market around…Detwilers Farm Market!

Where’s your favorite place to shop for organic produce and healthy food? Tips? Recipes?

Some very happy, grateful folks tonight….

What a day!

Jeremiah 29:11-13 New International Version (NIV)

11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 12 Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart

12 Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart
