Mama's Home

It warmed my heart seeing the horses run to me and, for the record, I didn't even have hay.  We are back on the ranch ranch for a few days of R&R. While it isn't physically hard caring for my parents, it is restricting and draining, and I was getting very emotional and neurotic. Our oldest son volunteered  took  to fill in for us and, by all accounts, is doing a great job. It relieves my mind knowing that we now have a back up caretaker.

The weather and beauty of these Humboldt hills are a blessing and I have been spending my time enjoying the view from my living room window and also from the back of a horse.


  1. Oh TJ- my thoughts are with you. We know all too well how that feels. It is awesome to see you getting a chance to regroup and ride and be HOME for a bit.

    Our thoughts and prayers are will all of you.

  2. If anything can help rebalance your life, it's viewing all the beauty God has given us on earth - from the back of a horse. Breathe deeply; it will give you the strength to help your parents. Prayers for the future.

  3. a beautiful place like that would indeed restore your spirit, especially from the back of a horse!

  4. Good stuff. You both deserve it and I hope you can enjoy it as long as possible.

    Welcome home.


  5. Welcome home, even if it's just for a little bit. We've missed you.

  6. Glad you are getting some home time!!!


We love to hear what you have to say. Keep your comments coming! Thanks.
