Thanksgiving Thursday

"Give thanks each and every day. Never lose sight that each moment is a blessing and each day the grandest of gifts." ~Mama Hen 
Little Chick is a gift to all of God's living creatures. She spends at least two hours a day feeding hay and treats to the horses at the farm where she rides. Recently three malnourished neglected horses were brought to the farm and Little Chick has made it her mission to love them back to health. We went to our local apple orchard and picked up a huge crate of apples so we can bring treats to them every day. I love watching my daughter take care of these horses and if it weren't for dinner time she would never leave them. There is one horse in particular that tugs at my heart. He is very skinny and we make sure to give him as much hay and treats as possible. Grandma Hen came with us to the farm the other day to meet all of Little Chick's buddies. We had so much fun today with our first snow for the season! Of course we went sledding and topped it off with some hot cocoa! There is so much to be thankful for! Thank you Dear Lord!

  5. Those horses are very blessed to have such a wonderful little helper and caretaker. It's amazing the spirit and nurturing nature that kids have. They are a constant reminder of how God wants us to live and treat others.
