This has been a rough season of life for all of us, and I know emotional energy is hard to spare. We're having to harness every bit of what we have to survive and thrive and help those close to us do the same. It's not easy. I appreciate you all for following Epona's little journey. I thank you for sticking with us, even when we didn't know how it would turn out. Your prayers, advice, and constant friendship helped see us through. So, thank you, thank you, thank you.
As an update, she has gone from 250 to 320 pounds in two weeks. She is strong, opinionated, and a stronger eater. We no longer hear the raspiness from hay or grain that she used to have while eating.
There has been so much taken from us this last couple of years, but I am reminded that love cannot be taken from us. Sometimes, it does not seem like we have much to offer--me to you, me to Epona, you to me--but that is not true. Love is free and there is an infinite supply of it in our hearts, just waiting to be shared.
Last year, my son married the love of his life, but because of Covid, they couldn't have a big ceremony. Instead, they postponed it to this year, hoping Covid would be a long gone thing of the past. Unfortunately, it isn't a thing of the past, but we were able to get a permit to hold the wedding outside, with some precautions, and everything worked out well.
Love is more powerful than we'll ever know, and the world needs it now more than it ever has in my lifetime.
