dirty boots

From Avery's riding lesson

Posted by Picasa

My horse lovin' girl,

 finally got her boots dirty!

Man was she in her element,
fearless and in control.
I watched in amazement as she
commanded "Smoke em'"
round the arena,
straight and tall she sat,
breathing easy, zestfully devouring the moment.

Happiness belonged to her.
Best money this mama ever spent?
Ten bucks on a Christmas special, horse ridin' lesson.

I love you, Avery J.
Thank you for teaching me not to surrender,
 to find yourself, your own way, in the things YOU love...
in complete disregard for what everyone else
 is doing, saying, liking, wearing or just plain being. blossom where you've been planted.
