The longest nights, the shortest days, the fullest moon and Christmas all clustered together this year. We awoke to our first real snow of the season this Christmas Eve morning at Restoration Ranch.
There’s nothing quite like snow at Christmas time to inspire the kid in me. I couldn’t wait to get out and sweep the snow off the walk and take pictures of the artfully frosted elm trees.
If you have spent any time with me at all you’ll have heard me talk about how horses are so in touch with all of their senses. Watch them revel in the weather, whatever it may be. Susan pulled in to feed this morning and watched three of the old guard drop and wallow in the snow, one after the other. It’s like a chain reaction, everyone wants to get in on the fun! Imagine how invigorating it must be to live so in touch with nature and the elements?
My wish for you this holiday season is to find your own way to revel in the elements, to awaken your senses, take a cue from the horses and let loose. Do something completely foolish and silly that reminds you of what it was like to be a kid. I don’t know why we let go of our playful spirit as we grow into adults?
