Years before I ever knew I’d have horses so predominantly in my life, I bought a pair of fancy cowboy boots and wore them with everything. I loved the way I felt in them…confident, strong and purposeful. Little did I know they were messengers of a future time….20 years hence… when wearing cowboy boots and riding boots would bring me far more pleasure than just fashion. Now every time I put on my boots while getting ready for my morning with Romeo, I am awash with gratitude. I cannot imagine a life without horses.
It seemed only fitting that I recycle the original boots when they become worn thin… giving them a new job of housing my favorite succulent plants.
One I gave to my friend and the other now greets those who come to our front door with a wonderful reminder that even the smallest of things in life can be messengers foretelling a time of dreams fulfilled.
