Seth finds friends every where he goes. It doesn't matter whether he knows their name or if he will ever see them again.

Some friends are furry!

Some are beautiful!

Big Brothers can be crazy friends:)

Some Friends pray for you!

Queens Contest

For weeks Elizabeth has been practicing for the Queens Contest at the Atchafalaya Bit and Bridle Club. Today was the big day. The Contest was not a beauty pageant. Had it been, I would not have allowed her to participate. The Contest was an exhibition of horsemanship.

The Duties of a Queen: Represent and be proud of your club. Always be kind and willing to help others. Wear your crown and banner to every event you could possibly make. Ride in Parades, Ride in grand entries. Help to raise money for next years contest.

Winners will be announced at the first ABBC Horse Show in March. Will she win? I don't know. What I do know is that she did her best. Regardless of the out come, she is my Queen. Whether she wins the contest or not, I pray that she exhibits the traits worthy of a Queen.

Don't Judge By The Cover

Don't judge a book by it's cover. Heard that a million times. In regards to people, what about first impressions? In a job interview, the first impression is so important. How you present yourself, how you dress, how you speak, not say too much, not say too little, be yourself, sell yourself.

I was thinking lately about family and friends and what makes them who they are. If you are looking at their covers, you might see covers that are skinny, fat, gray-haired, funny, insecure, boisterous, wealthy, blue collar, or needy. Underneath these covers are some beautiful people.

I would like to zoom in on one little boy for a minute. He comes across loud, ADHD (not actually diagnosed), and mischievous. He has two speeds; full throttle and crash. He gets fussed at lot. He gets lots of rolled eyes. I get lots of looks from others that I interpret as, "Cant, you do something with him?" But all these things are just his cover. Underneath, there is a soft hearted little boy that can't stand the thought of people being mad at him. A little boy that wraps his arms around me every night and tells me, "Mommy, I love you as big as the earth!" A little boy that cried his heart out while watching "Letters To God". I just have to add that this little boy is only 6.

Remember as you go about, don't judge people by their covers. Look deeper.

God Bless,
