Got up as usual and got Boo, Owl, and Bunny round. I usually feed horses before I take Boo to school. In nasty weather the girls sit in the truck and watch me feed and water. Today was one such day. The HK Bar received nearly an inch of rain last night so the pastures are muddy, the lane is muddy, hell, the mud is muddy.
While feeding breakfast to the horses of course my boots got muddy and my old jeans had spatters of mud as well. I wasn’t concerned about my attire, I mean it’s not like I was going to church! But then, that’s when reality hit. When I got back into the truck Captain Boo pipes up from the back, “Hey Mama, remember today is mass at school? Remember, you said you and the little girls promised to come!”
That’s when I looked down at muddy jeans and boots and thought
Oh holy shit! Oh No! I have no time to change my clothes and I do remember I promised!
So I made a decision and said, “Of course I’ll be there Boo! I wouldn’t miss it for the world!”
The smile on her face was all worth it. So I got out once again, hosed of my boots the best I could and then headed off to church.
At least the little girls were clean (no muddy boots) and dressed cute. No one batted an eye about my attire. Ok I’m sure there was someone that thought I looked like a bum. But then again, I don’t really care one way or another, because I was there fulfilling a promise to Captain Boo. And church isnt about what you wear on the outside, its about what you wear on the inside!
