Just a Horse!

From time to time, people tell me, "lighten up, it's just a horse," or, "that's a lot of money for "just a horse".

    They don't understand the distance travelled, the time spent, or the costs involved for "just a horse."


  Some of my proudest moments have come about with "just a horse."  Many hours have passed and my only company was "just a horse," but I did not once feel slighted.

  Some of my saddest moments have been brought about by "just a horse,' and in those days of darkness, the gentle touch of "just a horse" gave me comfort and reason to overcome the day.

 If you, too, think it's "just a horse," then you will probably understand phrases like "just a friend," "just a sunrise," or "just a promise."

  "Just a horse" brings into my life the very essence of friendship, trust, and pure unbridled joy.

  "Just a horse" brings out the compassion and patience that make me a better person.

Because of "just a horse" I will rise early, take long walks and look longingly to the future.

   So for me and folks like me, it's not "just a horse" but an embodiment of all the hopes and dreams of the future, the fond memories of the past, and the pure joy of the moment.

  "Just a horse" brings out what's good in me and diverts my thoughts away.

 I hope that someday they can understand that it's not "just a horse" but the thing that gives me humanity and keeps me from being "just a woman/man."

  So the next time you hear the phrase "just a horse" just smile, because they "just" don't understand.
