Writer on a Horse
And a Dog

The world looks better from the back of a horse and the roads of life are easier with a good dog beside you.

Grow every day

Another gem of wisdom my Granny would say... "Grow every day, in knowledge, in friends in faith.
I've got the knowledge part... I really do like to learn about new things.  I also like to try new things but not as much as I did when I was young.

Now the friend part... I know tons of people but I have very few I call friend.  So every decade is more like what I tend to do with friends.

In faith, I wish I could ask Granny "Faith in what?"  I know in my heart she meant God and I've got that but faith in my country nope.... faith in people, nope... so my question would be to Granny.... How can you be true to yourself and still have faith in people?  Her answer would most likely have been... Do what you can, forget what you can't and treat everyone like you would want them to treat you.  A smile goes a long way and a kind word might be what that person needs to make it though the day. 

Okay the smile and kind word part I might need to work on.

Here's smiling at you and the kind word... dream big, love with your entire being and fight for what you believe in.

Love you friend. I feel like I know your granny too. Is that where you get your "smarts" from?
