Keep Trying

This verse is one of my many favorites as it has so much meaning to me. During the trials of the 4 years I was recovering from an auto accident, I went through many trials and even thought I would never ride again. This picture was when I was 7 months post hip surgery andContinue reading “Keep Trying”

Throw away your trash!

Have you ever drove down the road and seen trash scattered, or bags to be picked up? Have you seen someone’s vehicle that you can’t sit in because they haven’t cleaned it in years? Well our lives are pretty similar. Just like the trash scattered all over the roads, we can scatter our “trash” asContinue reading “Throw away your trash!”

Never Give up on what you love

“In the day when I cried out, You answered me, and made me bold with strength in my soul.” Psalm 138:3 This was when I was 7 months post op. I am now officially one year post op. This is a long post. I won’t lie, after you get hurt sometimes it is hard toContinue reading “Never Give up on what you love”

Brush your teeth (Faith)

I wrote this a few years ago when thinking about faith and feel this is true even today! As I am sitting here waiting on my food, I heard a lady on the radio talking about brushing her teeth really good before going to the dentist. Then it hit me, our faith is like brushingContinue reading “Brush your teeth (Faith)”

Don’t take things for granted

Never take anything for granted! No minute of the day is ever promised. So when you are struggling, remember someone else is wishing they could be in your position. For those who go to a race and don’t clock to get a check, tip over barrels, still stuck in the 5D, be grateful. There isContinue reading “Don’t take things for granted”

Don’t Judge Others

“Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?” Mathew 7:3 Too many pass judgement on others, when their closest is full of sin! There’s a homeless man with a sign asking for food, you think to yourself he’s tooContinue reading “Don’t Judge Others”

I needed to sell my Barrel Horse

So when I was told after my injection to slowly start riding again, I jumped at the chance. Although I knew in the back of my head this was not the right time. At first I told myself it was because he was a push style and with my hip injury, I really needed aContinue reading “I needed to sell my Barrel Horse”

Third week post op labral tear surgery

Monday I was not cleared to go back to work so just went to therapy and worked from home. I didn’t feel too bad, just sore and muscles tight. Tuesday my husband drove me up the doctor, and I had a couple xrays. Everything looked good, and he said I could take off my braceContinue reading “Third week post op labral tear surgery”

Second week post op labral tear surgery

Well I can now get on and off the couch and the first part of week 2 I got in my bed and managed to sleep there. I had to take a pain killer as it hurt, when on the bed. But it was another step forward! I didn’t take any hydro-acet during the day,Continue reading “Second week post op labral tear surgery”

Pre labral tear surgery

So we made an appointment with the surgeon and set a date for November 13th, 2017. I informed my boss and everyone else. During the next couple weeks there was a lot going through my head. Whether I was making the correct decision, or was it going to be a mistake. What would happen ifContinue reading “Pre labral tear surgery”

Hip injection and Summer Time

I had my hip injected to see how long that would last as I was completing physical therapy and only other option was surgery. Which surgeon wanted to get me stronger and I was against surgery. The injection hurt when they did it, and they used an ultrasound machine to guide the needle. They usedContinue reading “Hip injection and Summer Time”

Life on crutches part one

The first part of the struggles with being on crutches was gaining strength. Trying to walk very far took a lot out of me. It was also a challenge getting up and down stairs, in and out of stores, and just doing regular tasks. I was blessed having horses so my upper body strength wasn’tContinue reading “Life on crutches part one”
