Lori O., the only photographer who has ever made Speedy and me look good (more on that soon), shared this clever idea just before Christmas. Every time something good happens during 2013, you're supposed to note it on a small piece of paper and deposit it into a jar where it will be read at the end of the year. I made five of the jars and shared them with four friends. The top of the jar reads, It's All Good!
A recent ride on both boys could fill the jar with all the many ways they were good to me. Sydney was happy and working so nicely. I actually enjoyed every moment of the ride and had a grin from ear to ear during the left lead canter.
Speedy was simply FANTASTIC. We worked on three-loop serpentines, turns up the center-line, turns at C, and 20-meter circles. I couldn't believe how easy it all was. He felt so put together. After a few different patterns, I came up the center-line for a fabulous halt at X. That is going in the jar!
We finished up with walk to canter transitions. I only needed to do one in each direction; they were that good. That is also going in the jar.
I can't wait to read all of these little moments of happiness next December. What will be in your jar?
