645.  Finally finding that “magic” horse for Cherub 2,  after much searching since June (when Smokie passed away).  On Sunday when they met, it was “love at first sight” …. that very special kind of love that only exists between a little girl and the horse who “chose” her when their eyes met.  ** Thank you, JE and WE, for "that smile" ... and for offering this beautiful animal at "just" the right time.  And thank you, Lord, for this opportunity timed so perfectly, for her tender little heart's healing -- and for the blessing of being able to witness the moment their eyes met. **
