January 8-9 SPFR Philaelphia MS
I've always thought of myself as a strong person that can mentaly block out most anything in order to make the best run of my ability. I do know that I failed miserably at that during the SPFR. My mom has been battling Alzehimers and was not doing well. I left after the rodeo on Friday night and went home. I just wanted to be with my mom.......I did run Saturday night and had a much better run on Perks N Firewater. There is just something about the SPFR in Philadelphia that does not set well with my horses. They run on crappy ground all year but the footing in that building is just not for us...maybe one day.
I lost my mother on Tuesday, January 12. There are no words that I can type to descirbe how I feel. I am thankful for the support of my family and friends during this time. I think I will be taking some time off from the road for a little while. I want to be with my family and our home place. There are just simply no words or emotions to describe how hard this is.
