Every time you feel in God's creatures something pleasing and attractive, do not let your attention be arrested by them alone, but, passing them by, transfer your thought to God and say: "O my God, if Thy creations are so full of beauty, delight and joy, how infinitely more full of beauty, delight and joy art Thou Thyself, Creator of all!
- Nicodemus of the Holy Mountain

You can’t get to joy by making everything perfect. You can only get there by seeing in every imperfection all that’s joy.

Saddling up,

at a trot,

round the barrels,

beautiful partnership!

    What I meant to say was:
    Thanks, Erin. One of the joys of being Molly's mom is that she turned out as horse crazy as I was at her age. Thankfully (because of some very good friends and neighbors) she has a lot more opportunity to learn and participate in events than I did as a kid. Now I get to enjoy it through her!
