From Indy


My friend Jazz just got a hair cut. He looks like a movie star with his puffy hair and painted toes. He knows that he’s handsome, but he doesn’t let it go to his head. He displays a strong, quiet dignity, like a fellow who is secure with his place in the world. I really like Jazz. And while I’m a bit jealous of his poofy white hairdo, I also appreciate my own soft, butterscotch colored coat.

Jane had a bunch of friends visit this week. She showed them around our lovely barn and gave a demo ride on Moshi. Everyone was very kind to me, giving me lots of love and even a few treats. I overheard several people say how glad they were that they’d come to Jane’s event, even though they weren’t sure they’d fit in. Some were worried that they weren’t advanced enough riders or strong enough competitors to be part of the group. Some were worried that they were too old or not fit enough participate. But it didn’t take long for almost everyone to feel at home, and at ease. Almost everyone realized that they were loved and accepted by me, Jane, Moshi, and the rest of the group, just as they are.

How do you feel with the group of people you hang out with? Do you have a supportive circle of friends who love you just the way you are? Are you that good, unjudgmental friend to others?

We’re all in this together, so being kind to each other is not only the right thing to do, it will also make your life a happier and more rewarding one.

So, just for today, I suggest you find someone to be kind to. If you’ve not been very nice to yourself lately, that would be a great place to start.

I’ve had a bit of a stomach ache from all the treats I kindly received this week. So I’m going to be nice to myself and take a long nap in the sun. What are you going to do for yourself that is kind and caring today?

Love, Indy
