aliedwards Words and photos. It's what I do. Reflections today on the blog regarding the photo I shared here earlier the week - answering the question, "Do you see what I see?" Check it out: aliedwards.com/blog 5d
  •   alexandriarosee_ I love this photo. I also loved your post. So inspiring. As always! 5d
  •   em2thej I loved this post. And I loved Aaron's observation about wearing glasses. 5d
  •   denaenicolephotography Amazing. One of my favorites to date. 5d
  •   kraftkris I think the picture captures joy! Fun pic & lovely post to go with 5d
  •   rickeydd This was fantastic! I'm going to try this with my husband. It's so great to get a different perspective! Thank you Ali! 5d

aliedwards In the stall on the far right you'll find a 13-year-old boy who had a tough day at school but who was able to switch gears for his Thursday lesson. When he got in the car and expressed his dissatisfaction with the day I initially worried that he might have a hard time adjusting his attitude enough to make the drive out to the barn. There have been years in the past where that initial level of frustration would mean the day was done, regardless of what else was on the agenda. He's grown so much over the last few years in his ability to move on and through but it's still a work in progress (isn't it for all of us to some degree?). I think it helps that he really likes it out here and I so believe there is magic in this barn and in his connection to the horses. 6d
  •   suetr My girls head straight for the fog when they've had a hard day. Love kids can have that connection. 5d
  •   goodnorthcoastlife After a hard day with people, all l want to do is hang out with my animals 5d
  •   blueyedscrapper Animals have that affect of people--they are amazing!! For one of my sons, it is our dog. Our dog just. knows. when Ray has a bad day. 5d
  •   mommacros This brought a tear to my eyes reading it. I grew up on a horse farm and my sister has started teaching kids to ride and love horses as much as she does. Hope he finds himself in the barn. There's no better place 5d
  •   hooptydoopty Yes! Totally a work in progress here on that. I've surrendered many days to discouragement because something/someone got hold of me and I allowed it to ruin my joy. I think being more aware of the time I've given away and wasted to that are way too valuable and I'm somehow able to take hold of myself better and press forward. I still fail at times but man each time I don't I feel better and stronger and mighty. Hooray for Simon. Big win for him. 5d
  •   dotarnilove His happy place :) 5d
  •   thisbusylife My son is 5 and we lose days to his struggles and miss activities as well, but he seems to have a connection with animals and they help calm him. 4d
  •   mrsmartha I was so disappointed when our health insurance stopped covering hippotherapy for my son. He LOVED it. (The out of pocket cost would have been $85.00 for 15 mins. Yikes!) He had such an amazing connection to his horse. Totally mutual understanding without lots of words. I'm so thankful Simon loves it. 5h
