Like losing a close friend

This morning I woke up to a very sad email. My mother sent me an email telling me she had to put her horse down. Ruby was my mother's main riding horse. She was the mare my mom used for all her posse stuff. Ruby was just 11 years old (young for a horse) and she had just really made progress with all the games and flags and drills that my mom rode her in . Apparently within 24 hours Ruby had become so ill that euthanizing her was the humane thing. The vet suspected colic as the cause of the mare's pain and quick decline in health. . . .an autopsy revealed that Ruby had some major issues with her stomach/intestines. She had an intestine that was twisted. My mother was pretty devisted. I can only imagine how much my horses mean to me & losing one would be so tough. My heart breaks a little for my mom and a little for Ruby. For me a horse is more than a pet. . .

So sorry for your Mom and your loss, my animals are more then just pets too, they are family members. I lost my first horse when I was 17 to colic and I was devastated. He was a Palomino, I know you have a love of Palomino's like I do too!

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I know only too well how hard it is to lose a pet. They certainly are more than just pets, they are family.

My heart goes out to you and your mom!

All my love! Nancy

My Testimony

It's hard to put into words how I feel toward my Heavenly Father and the Savior. I have so many reasons to be thankful for what I have gone through & endured. Because of my trials in life I have gained a strong testimony of Faith. I have always had Faith in the Lord and in Prayer. As I faced the decision to get a double lung transplant I had to rely on faith to make the choice.....By listening to the spirit, I was guided to Pittsburgh where my life was saved. I believe prayers are answered. I have always tried to follow the philosophy of this: If I do what the Lord expects of me, he will give me what I want & need. That has always worked for me. I Believe in MIRACLES..........My life on this earth is a miracle- I prayed on my knees for years to be healed from my lung disease. I knew that through a priesthood blessing (if it was God's will) I could be healed. So many times I thought he would heal me instantly...my faith was tested as I continued to get sick and no cure was in my future. I turned to prayer....I talked to my Heavenly Father, I cried to him and he heard me and he healed me by guiding me to Pittsburgh and guiding the surgeons hands. I learned humility, and thankfulness. I realized that we need others to lean on and we are supposed to strengthen each others testimonies. I learned that the hardest things we'll do are usually the greatest blessings in our life. I was able to experience a lot of things during surgery and I know I had comforting angels in my ICU room. THe Lord knows each of us by name and he will never leave our side. We need to remember to stay close to him and have Faith that he is watching over us. I know this for a fact! I know that following the gospel will bring us true happiness- the world will tell us otherwise, but I know I am truely happy & living the gospel has brought me that. Amen
