Why horse hair and angel kisses?
Well if you know anything about me, you know that I LOVE horses so hence the horse hair. Someday, when I can afford it (if that ever happens) I want to own a ranch somewhere in Montana or Tennessee and have at least a few horses. Some may ask why I love horses so much. Horses to me represent beauty. Beauty may be in the eyes of the beholder, but horses have inspired artists and poets through the ages. I am awed by the sight of a herd of horses galloping through a field – powerful, independent beasts but stunning to view. Horses are fun. There is no experience quite like galloping over an open field on the back of your best friend who enjoys it just as much as you do. I love to ride, but it’s not the only reason for my passion for horses. Truth is even if I didn’t ride I’d still I love being around them. Horses relax me and intuitively seem to know what I need. It’s like having a best friend who knows exactly how you feel without you ever having to say a word. They free me from the cares and worries of my life. It’s like what Katie says at the end of the movie Flicka, “When I’m riding Flicka, all I feel…. is free.”
As well as horses, I absolutely LOVE kids too. They are my passion. I loved working in the nursery at my church at home in the Springs and miss it dearly. Today I work in the church nursery at a church close to my college. I am also pursuing a degree in Elementary Education with a concentration in ESL. After that, I have WAY too many dreams. Either I want to join YWAM and get an associate degree in Children’s Ministry or work in an orphanage somewhere in South or Latin America. Basically, I’d be happy working anywhere as long as I could work with kids, especially Hispanic children who hold a special place in my heart. To me kids and horses are a lot a like. They both have that emotional connection with me and can heal the pain. They make me laugh; they make me smile. I’ve had so many experiences with kids between my nursery class and those I’ve met in Guatemala that just touch my heart. I can’t even explain it. So why Angel kisses? because for me, kids (although sometimes problemsome) are angels in my book and their kisses make everything better. I love them so much. They are my biggest passion.
