I haven't felt her energy much in the past couple weeks. I've been so busy, working on my new publishing venture, getting ready for my first parade and horse show...when I think of her it's quick thoughts during the day, but I'm busy living and loving life.

Still, when I rode in the parade today - I've always wanted to ride my horse in a parade and did at age 55 this morning - there was a second where I got verklempt, just a second. I know she was there, just checking in.
