From Endurance to Dressage
I Need a Break
I bet you do too. Fortunately, Facebook has been plastered with funny memes this week. No, COVID-19 isn't a joke, but people are hilarious, and thank goodness they are or else I'd be blubbering under the covers right about now. Letting some of the pressure escape with a good laugh at ourselves can only keep us healthier.
In Prose Works, Mary Baker Eddy, the founder of Christian Science, said, "If only the people would believe that good is more contagious than evil [...] how much more certain would be the doctor's success [...]." In this instance, laughter could certainly replace good without changing her meaning. In fact, it only strengthens her point.
With that, here are some of my favorite memes from the past two days.
Is this official?
As a teacher, I can't help but laugh ...
Stuck at Home?
For my fellow equestrians ...
Straight from the heart ...
Thank those folks still going to work - my husband works for an agricultural company, so he just left for work, keep scrubbing your hands, smile at everyone, and find something to laugh about. The British never had it more right than when in 1939 they encouraged their people to Keep Calm and Carry On.

When I was at the store this weekend, I thanked my regular cashier, but she didn't look very "thanked," if you know what I mean. When I said, "You probably hear that all day long." She sort of rolled her eyes. I must have looked sympathetic because suddenly she explained that she was worried about her husband who is a correctional officer. I think just listening to her express her fear was much better than my "thank you." So I agree, practice kindness even it that just means listening. :0)

Frickin’ awesome. Haven’t laughed that hard in ages. Humor might be the ONLY thing that gets us all through this.

About the Writer and Rider
I am a lifelong rider.
I began endurance riding in 1996 where I ultimately completed five, one-day 100 mile races, the 200-mile Death Valley Encounter, and numerous other 50, 65, and 75 mile races. I began showing dressage in 2010.
Welcome to my dressage journey.
