Passions and Dreams

"Combine a passion and a dream and you have a happy heart." ~Mama Hen

Little Chick has three things she has had a passion to do for a long time: play piano, play violin and ride horses. This week she will have two of her dreams come true. My daughter has asked me every day (no kidding) to play the piano for two years. I have been looking for pianos for quite some time and finally found one that will be delivered tomorrow. It is a surprise. The second dream has been her desire to play the violin. This too she asks me every day. We will wait until she is a bit older for this instrument. Today Little Chick had her first riding lesson and she lit up like a Christmas tree. Ever since we saw the movie National Velvet over the winter, my daughter has wanted to ride. She watches every horse movie and plays with her horses, barn and coral whenever she can. Before today she had been on two couple minute pony rides at parties. I was so proud of how responsible and much older my baby acted today in her lesson. Her horse's name was Snickers. She held on to the reins and walked right out of the stable with her horse. She asked the instructor if she could trot like the older girls were doing in the ring. I was smiling from ear to ear when she held her posture and trotted away. She was amazing! I was so incredibly proud and impressed with my beautiful daughter.

  4. Riding is so good for the soul! As a horse person and mother of 2 riders I can attest to that! (: I've been completely bogged down in relocating/moving stuff and my little one broke her arm yesterday! Sorry I've been so absent!

  11. This is wonderful and I'm so inspired to get my daughter some lessons. She lives horses and is currently obsessed with the cartoon, Horseland. It's not my favorite of all cartoons, but it's all horses and i have a hard time denying her that :) I think I'm going to have to call you the Fairy God-mother, because you are making dreams come true all over the place ;)
