Today’s Inspirational Message
As I was headed on my way out the door this morning to a martial arts class taught by the amazing and extremely talented Theresa Byrne and Chris Natske, I encountered a brief conversation with God.
God: Take your headphones with you.
Me: No. I don’t have time to look for them.
I leave the house.
And as I’m backing out of my driveway…
God: Go get the headphones, now.
Me: Ok, fine.
Following my instructions, I ran back into the house and grabbed my headphones. (I have a few pairs)
Went to my awesome class and learned some pretty cool moves …
Went to visit Trigger …
So there is a 14-yr old girl who helps care for the horses ….and she has a piece of my heart. She’s had it a little “rough” in life, in and out of foster homes, so whenever I have the opportunity to say something that can either inspire, teach or maybe just an ear to listen, I’m there. I make it a point to tell her that horses are awesome communicators and will give great advice if she can listen to the whispers. I also mentioned once that if she’s having a hard day, to sit with the horses and just begin talking about whatever is on her mind.
So today when I saw her she said, “I sat with Harley (sick horse) yesterday for about 30 minutes and we talked about the pros and cons of life.” (Mind you, Harley was set to be euthanized a few days ago; but somehow, someway that didn’t happen and is making a full recovery)
Me: “Cool. Have you ever watched horses communicate within the herd?”
Her: “No. I don’t know how. No one has ever taught me.”
Me: “Well, I can share with you what I know but also watch utube. Sometimes you can get great information.”
Her: “My headphones broke.”
Me: “Here you go… take these.”
So on my way home:
God: It wasn’t about you. It’s about being there for someone else.
Me: Got it.
