“Silent Night, Holy Night..” Oh well… so for that…

Late night and I venture out to feed the horses.  It is cold and crisp and the air smells like snow.

The horses are quiet- we’ll pretend they weren’t having their normal squabbles.  I’m enjoying the time in the dark and the silence.  It barely seems cold although the temperature is probably in the teens.  I am just enjoying my quiet time…

Wilson & Levi are sniffing noses… Levi gives Wilson a “kiss.”  They lived together for a while and are friends.  I smile at them.  Such an odd friendship.

I think…

Silent night, holy night!
All is calm, all is bright.

Then the silence is shattered by Levi yelping.  Wilson stepped on Levi because he felt threatened by another horse and Levi failed to move.

So much for “Silent Night.”

These are the days of my life…

(note- Levi is fine)




About Mary K. Smith

I was widowed in July 2009, when I lost my beloved husband, John, to melanoma. Cancer SUCKS. We have a young son who was just a year old when his father died. I live on a small farm in Maryland which is home to horses, cats, and a dog. I started this blog as a way for me to heal, a way to remember my husband, and eventually I'd like to share it with our son so he can see the love that his father had for him, the love that we had for each other, what a great person his father was, and how hard his father fought to live.
