Well not really, but this week’s Spin is about roles, and I figured what a better way to get your attention than with a title like that, right?
I am a woman; a friend; a sister; a daughter to parents and God; a wife (sort of!) and step mother; a best friend; a cowgirl; a horseman.
My Facebook page has my job title listed as “Ranch Diva”. I do the ranch marketing where the horse program is concerned. I can ride the “range”. Start colts. Rope. I have my own fashion sense, and my nails are more often painted, than not.
I’m a horseman on a journey toward becoming an even better horseman. I am short of patience, but learning to have more. And someday I might become even become a Buckaroo (the Gringo name for a Vaquero: the Spanish name for a top-hand cowboy who made bridle horses). That’d be just fine by me.
In my own mind I’m a world-class chef. And don’t tell Zach’s mom (or sister)- but he says I’m the best. Cook. Ever.
I’m my own interior designer, and I’m good at it.
My life is a journey. I’m still evolving into the person that I desire to be. I get closer everyday to a girl who doesn’t worry, doesn’t stress, and isn’t concerned with time, where horses and ranching are concerned. I’m only painting the backdrop right now- the finer details are still to come. Someday I’ll be a mom. And I’ll be a Rock-star in the eyes of my kids. I’d like to be a contestant at the NFR. I’ll make a bridle horse or 10. I’ll be Zach’s partner in crime, and life, until death do us part.
The role I play in my life, is something different daily- and it makes me better. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
