I look into your eyes and I know you won't kill me

It took a LOT of courage but Lisa of Laughing Orca Ranch accomplished a major feat this Christmas, almost exactly one year after her fateful fall from Baby Doll. I was happy to witness the transition from fear to JOY as she sat astride her Paint mare for the first time since that fateful day.

I am so glad that you were able to help Lisa conquer her goal of getting back on BD!! That is so great! Seeing her smile brought tears of joy!

I'm so happy for Lisa. You are a great friend being there for her as she accomplished her goal. I most especially loved the picture on her blog when BD threw her head. You looked completely calm and in control. I can bet that is exactly what BD and Lisa needed right then. Way to be.

Hey Val,
I liked seeing these photos from your perspective in front of Baby Doll. Thanks for taking them.

Also, thank you for being there. It really meant a lot to me.

Happy New Year to you,
