October.

October from day 1 has not been a good month.

My MeMa passed away. It was sudden and unexpected. I still can't imagine her being gone, because she has always been there. Always.

I loved her very, very much. Along with everyone else that had even laid eyes on her. She was such an amazing woman.

I walked my friend, Leslie, outside tonight after catching up on a television show. Revenge. If you haven't watched it, watch it. Well, only if you like that kind of thing.

When we walked outside, I heard pounding of hooves.

Lately, I have been having a few issues, so I told her goodbye and walked up to the horse pasture.

It's 1 AM, the moon is shining so that I can see everything clearly. There are tons of stars in the sky and my girls are right up by the house.

Those hooves were Sir Flint's. Who else?! I mean, did I really think different!

I unlatched the gate to my girls pasture and visited with SoBe and then Lizzie.

It was so very peaceful. No noise, no people, nothing but silence and my beautiful creatures.

I just thought... How blessed am I to have such a wonderful family, home, friends... and horses.

God can create some beautiful things. Moonlight, stars, and horses (all combined) is so beautiful.

Yeah, that may sound weird to you. But, that was the calmest I have felt in days. Just being able to lay my head on my horse's neck and look at the stars and just breathe...

Thank you, God, for creating such beautiful creatures. And thank you for giving me such an amazing family.

I'm sorry to hear that :( We are so lucky to have beautiful creatures like our horses whom we can confide in whenever we need to.
