As I helped Wally load the horses and gear up for competition I couldn’t help the tears that welled up in my eyes.
Why am I feeling this way?
Then I remembered the little girl who dreamed of riding a horse and taking it to the Minnesota State Fair. Dreams that were never realized since Daddy died when I was eight; the farm and the horse were all sold.
I never thought I’d be here at Long Timber next to where my mother was born. Mother told me stories of this place but I never believed I’d be here. Dreams I’d never even dared to dream have come true. That’s why there were tears in my eyes.
To read about Long Timber look at my posts from 2019. To read about my mother and her memories of this place read Visions from Two Continents the kindle version is still available on Amazon. I’m working on writing part of my own journey
