"My Inspiration here"
That's my baby girl of 12 years up there.... 6 of them financially on our own. But her "dad" today-the only one she ever saw as dad-has been in her life since she was 1 1/2... and has taken on so much of her, due to my severe illnesses over the last few years. They have truly bonded-we are all so blessed. And she is legally allowed to be his-has been that way since 2009-never heard another peep. So we will move forward on that.
Off that subject... isn't it amazing though the talents God does give us? When I was young I was a full time, mega pusher gymnast. No fear ever in me. Then or now. Now my kiddo is a remarkable story of trust. My baby girl never wanted to skate, ride bikes, pogo sticks, swim, gymnastics, soccer, so on and so on.... still doesn't--except she swims a bit more. Her trust was not, and is not ready for that stuff. And I don't blame her after all she has been thru. She has seen me seize big time, too many times. Hospitalized at least twice a year. Three brain surgeries and several others if I named them this blog would go on and on to explain. Point is, she is very trusting of God and how He takes great care of me, so I could always come back and take good care of her. She always clung hard to me, partially because the ex was very aggressive, partially because she feared me going again. I think deep in her soul-she -SHE didn't fear those things to do as I said above-I think she feared if ANYTHING could happen, that MY feelings would be as sad when she would be hurt, in the hospital like mommy-and she never wanted to do that to me. That is her heart. Biggest heart I know of aside of Jesus.
So why horses? I believe it is God's animal of trust. Team work, like she and her Mommy-out expressing life cantering and leaping in the freedom they get-trusting each other, trusting God-showing mommy what an amazing kid she has brought up. And I am so proud.
The talents and gifts God gives us are just amazing. I love hers-cause she has loved horses since a tiny toddler --knowing deep in her heart this was going to be her life. My kid knows everything about every type of horse. Blows my brain away!! I am just one very proud mom that she has found her way to "fly!!" To reach that part of the heart God created for us to keep feeling these amazing feelings--and keep reaching for more--never just stop at one. He is full of amazing plans that will take your gift to higher levels--excelling your current gift, and adding on more!! Our God is One Amazing God... and I am truly amazed He ever chose me for the ride as the mom of such a very sweet soul-with such sweet gifts from the heart.
I love you Tory... never lose that gift in your heart! Your love surpasses all the 12 yr old's I've met. You are one special angel.... I am just very blessed!!!
Keep reaching for your gifts, your talents God has in store for you!!! Most amazing moments can come from a simple accomplishment using it. Such as today... Tory got 3 ribbons... all first place! She showed us how she has excelled-and we are so proud!! Always have been-alway will be!!
Blessings to you all!!! Go snatch your gift--your talents--no, just go start them--you have them already!!
