Paying forward and looking back

A few weeks ago I got a wonderful package from Lisa - a book, Chosen by a Horse which is one of the most heart wrenching stories about loving an abused horse, and a lovely pair of socks with a happy moose.

I sent the book on to Wolfie, along with my trivia book, and a photo of my father's.

You can see the photo here:

My father is a wonderful photographer, and I wish his work was hanging in more places. It was so fun to send this out. And this is my favorite of his photos...

Thanks to Lisa for setting this all in motion...

I would like to thank Lisa for setting this in motion, too! Thanks so much. Breathe, for sending me the books and a copy of your father's picture. As you know, I loved Chosen by a Horse and will be passing on the copy to my riding friend with the hope that she will pass it on when she has finished reading it. I have a special place in mind for your father's photograph. I will post a picture of it once it's up. I am so happy that blogging has allowed me to meet such special people!! Thanks again, Breathe!

Chosen by a Horse is a very sad story, isn't it?

I love your father's flower picture. Your father is a very good artist. I feel lucky to have made his acquaintance.

There's something special about Chosen by a Horse , isn't there?

I was given an Advance Reader's Copy of it by a friend who thought I should read it (she and I are both librarians, but we don't often trade our books around). Reading the book helped me to make compassionate choices for my mare when the time came.

As soon as I finished reading the book, I packed it up and mailed it to a friend I rarely see any more.

She loved it so much that she kept it--but she bought two copies at the bookstore and gave them to friends.

I wonder if the author knows how much this book affects us? I haven't read the sequel yet.

Beautiful photo; it looks like an intricate painting. I've heard of the book and am wondering too if it is sad. Sounds like a good one.

There is an award for you at my blog. You needn’t play if you’ve already received this. Just wanted you to know that I appreciate your blog and have linked to it at: http://onceuponanequine.blogspot.com/2010/03/beautiful-award.html.
