The temperature was a balmy 50 degrees today, and we were loving every minute of it. My husband and I took advantage of the opportunities it presented--working with the horses (and pony), finishing up the tie post, taking our dogs for a walk and soaking in the sun.
I don't say enough about my husband on this blog, but he is the backbone behind everything we do. He might not love horses as much as I do, but he loves me--and his care of the horses, the dogs, the cats, the goats and people who come here, is all the proof I need of it, and my Valentine's gift. (That, and my daughter, Shiloh, who was actually born on Valentine's Day.)
Last night, watching Ghost, which, by the way, was the first time my husband and I ever saw it, we were impressed by what he said as he left for the other world:
He said, "It's amazing, Molly. The love inside, you take it with you."
I believe it's true, the more people and animals you love, the more you have to take with you. When I die, my heaven's going to be full of dogs, cats, goats, 1 hawk, a parakeet, ducks, my friends, my family, lots of horses, and my husband.
Happy Valentine's Day to you, and I hope it includes much time with all those who are special in your life.
