Oh how I have missed looking out upon Avalon through the ears of Karoly! Today, I rode for the first time in a month. Wow, I can’t believe it’s been that long. Thanks Margo for riding with me. The canter up the hill was so freeing for me. To be on the back of a horse and breathe is one of the greatest joys of my world.
It was a great first day back working since dropping down a rabbit hole with Russell on March 13. I did about 1/10 of the work I normally do in a day but I did it. I was there for 8 hours and actually feel more energized than at the start of my day.
I have long known that Avalon is a marvelous and very rare farm. Being able to have my work be something I love with people who respect and trust me is a joy. As with anything in life, it has its kinks and things don’t always work out perfectly. But we sure try hard at Avalon to offer a healing space for horses and humans alike. I recognize the miraculous way that the Avalon community was able to keep things going strong as I journeyed with Russell in his final days. It is VERY rare any business owner can walk away from their business for weeks on end and come back with that business stronger than ever. I am deeply touched that I have been able to do just that.
I am so very thankful for the people at Avalon who love and support me enough to make sure I have ALL the space I and our kids need as we try to heal our aching hearts. Their willingness to do extra work so that I can simply sit and breathe is a treasured gift. One that I will never take lightly.
Thank you all for your ongoing love and support. We couldn’t make it through each day without you.
