Happy Valentine’s Day!

Valentine’s Day used to be one of my favorite holidays when I was a kid – but probably not for the reason you think.

My horse, Tru Luvs Valentine (known as Val), was born on Valentine’s Day. For a girl in love with her horse, celebrating Valentines Day with her with love and birthdays was perfect.

She’s gone now, passed away nearly eight years ago, but as those of you with heart horses can relate, they never really leave you. Lessons learned, empathy enhanced, responsibilities shouldered, hard work realized, partnerships built, but most of all, she provided me the best example of what it means to be loyal and to deeply love.

While I do still love Valentine’s Day, now with her gone it’s a day of celebrating life and love today while also remembering life and love past.
