This morning our “littles” were all bundled up for their riding class along with our volunteers in their coats, hats and gloves.
I bundled up as well and headed out with my camera phone to snap a few pictures. One of the boys stopped his horse for a close up. He smiled down at me with his blue eyes and long eye lashes as I snapped away and it was in that moment I was reminded again why we are here.
It’s all about loving these kids with the love of Christ and in return, we are the ones receiving unconditional love…from our Heavenly Father and from “blue eyes” and all the smiling faces of our students.
When a child picks up their reins, says “Walk On,” or acknowledges their volunteers, we experience everyday miracles.
The next time you’re at the Ranch, make sure to remember to look up into the eyes of our riders.
You’ll be reminded too.
