What a difference 2 years can make. I honestly thought the house fire was the worst thing that might happen to us, and then we were blessed with Quinn who gave us a run for our money. 2 years ago, we lost our house after moving into it just 3 short months prior, and remodeling it a large chunk of it.
We want to thank everyone for the continued support of our family throughout the trials that life has presented, it is honestly the most humbling experience to know you have family, friends, strangers and new acquaintances who are praying and sending you their support to get you through.
Our lives have forever been changed though these battles for the better, we have grown as a family, grown as individuals, and have a true understanding of the meaning of community. We want to take this time to remember and look back at how far we have come in the past 2 years as well as the past 3 months since Quinn decided to call us her Family.
Well there are many things that might come to mind with the Title of this post being “Broke Down.” However, it wasn’t me and my super pregnant self having a break down (Yippee – the rancher is doing a happy dance right now after the phone call).
So, on this amazingly beautiful October 25, I went out to help The Rancher work with a beautiful black horse to settle his fears of the bull whip and also the Side by Side.
The Rancher was on the horse (because I am about 9 months prego – as much as I told him I would LOVE to go ride – just not quite the right timing), and I was on the side by side. So after about 30 minutes of playing around with the horse, I turned off the machine and was enjoying nature at its finest. I went back, turned the key, and nothing….nothing at all. Now we are about 1.5 miles from home (still in the meadows thank gosh!), and the horse and rider are no where in sight. Thank gosh for cell service! So, after calling the rancher, we determine the battery is dead on the machine for whatever reason!
Well, instead of me walking, the amazing gentleman I married helped hoist my super prego self up on the trusty stead and we began our walk back to the ranch to get the other machine!
So on this amazing day, my husband walked back to the ranch, I got to ride a beautiful horse, and it was pure bliss! Now – I’m ready for this baby to come!
And of course we got both machines back to the ranch!
