Brandy Day111: Everything Will Be OK In The End If It’s Not OK, It’s Not The End

I used to cringe when someone would say, ‘Everything is going to be OK’. To me, its what you say when you don’t know what else to say in a difficult situation. After several difficult situations the words became meaningless.
Everything will be OK in the end. Its true. Life isn’t what we dream. Nor what others dream for us. Things don’t always go as we plan them. But in the end, we are where we need to be, with what we were meant to have.
Catch what we’re thrown. Love what we’re given. Enjoy moments. Most importantly the small moments. Those are the ones that pierce the heart.

Brandy Day50: Horsin’ Around

While driving today this little beefcake caught my eye. He was chasing his partner around the pasture, kicking up snow having a great time. So beautiful running and playing. Such ease and grace.
My mother has always loved horses. She’d always dreamt of having a paint, like the one shown above, since she was a child. A few years ago that came true and she got her black and white painted horse named Shadow. Shadow passed last summer while I was on my road trip. I was in the Badlands when I got the call from her. It was from then on, my mission to find and photograph paints. (I made her a calendar for Christmas of them)
