my trip to idaho!

A lot can happen in four days. A lot can change in someone’s life.

This trip to Idaho was different than the other times.

I learned a LOT. I learned how to rope. I learned how to doctor calves, drive a tractor, rebuild fences, how to get bucked off a horse ;), how to spin a reining horse, how to deal with different types of horses, and plenty of other things. But, more than anything, I learned how to … be a better person in general.

I learned how to be more optimistic, to be kind and caring. I learned that no matter how much you know about something, you can always learn more. I learned that hard work will take you far in life, and that even something as simple as a smile or a nice comment can brighten someone’s entire day.

And, I don’t know, I feel like I really grew up a bit. Do you know what I mean? I feel as if I’ve really changed for the better. I’m not sure if I can really explain it. I feel like a different person.

It’s amazing what four days can do, isn’t it? πŸ™‚

  1. Wow, these were some amazing pictures! I love the one of the sign about being a happy person. I’m glad you’ve left feeling like you are a better person. πŸ™‚ I’ve been learning a lot these past few weeks since I’ve started being around horses once a week. Sacrificial acts, hard work and figuring out you don’t fill feed buckets with water are just some of the things I’ve been learning/thinking about. πŸ˜‰ I totally get what you mean about feeling changed for the better. I’m starting to feel that way too.
    I’d also like to say how much I love and appreciate your blog. (I’m on the Rebelution, so that’s how I found it) I’ve been blessed! So thanks πŸ™‚

  2. Love it that you had such a good time. You have a pretty special uncle, and cousins too. Living close to God’s creation, and drinking in all the beauty, as well as the responsibility assumed with ranch life is a growth experience as well as a satisfying one.

  3. That sounds like fun and like you had a good time. Glad you could learn some things. I feel sorry for the calf who was roped and laying on the ground. πŸ™‚
