Journaling is something that I have done from a young age. It's something that I would encourage any youngster to do as it allows you the ability to think thoughts to yourself without writing them down. It allows you the opportunity to practice your penmanship, your computer skills, your analytical thought streams that you learn in school all in a subject that we all find very intriguing; ourselves.
This weekend at the 2016 Miss Rodeo Washington Pageant presented me with a unique opportunity to reach a national audience while showcasing the pageants of state title holders as well as answer questions that people may have about rodeo queening! What I wanted to do as the host for Rodeo Chat's Snapchat during the Miss Rodeo Washington Pageant is really highlight all of the aspects and all of the hard work that these young ladies go through just to COMPETE at the pageant, nothing even close to what they will be doing as title holder. I think that we were pretty successful!
Three months ago, I was sitting on the ground in a stall of a horse I had only just met, crying hysterically and feeling like a complete failure. It was day 5 and she huddled in the corner, quivering and terrified at my presence. I had no idea what to do, I had never been in a situation where I couldn't even get close to a horse before. We were just two terrified, young animals staring blankly at each other, completely clueless and scared.
I knew by Thursday night that Sunday, October 4th, was going to be one of the hardest days of recent for preachers and pastors in this nation, most especially those in Oregon, and even more especially those in the Willamette Valley. What happened on Thursday, October 1st, is so unimaginable and terrifying that it's hard for me to wrap my brain around it so instead I turned to my faith. I prayed for answers which I didn't feel as if I was getting.
