Taxi Mama

What do you get when you put a mother, of three, in a mini-van?  A Taxi Mama! I am so thankful to be able to drive my offspring to their special interest events. While driving my younger son to airsoft shooting, I came across another mother and son.

She does not taxi her son around, anymore, now that he is born ( and walking on the same day).  According to the kind owner, who allowed me to photograph her “babies”, this handsome little fellow was born during the recent Olympics. Yikes!  Can I even put that name in my blog?

The owner would like to put ” Olympic” ( now I am in double trouble) in his name, but she thinks it might cause a stir!  She was amazed that her horses did not make shy to me.  I was grateful… although I almost fell into the barbed wire fence, because I was so excited!

This makes up for the three horses I wanted to photograph the day before, when I was finished driving the other son to a  hiking spot.  I could not stop then, because I did not want to be late for the scrumptious dinner my husband was cooking for us.  Dinner time is no big deal for this little guy.  He just cozies up to his mother.

The visit is over… off they go.  Brief – but breathtakingly beautiful!  My heart is as full, as that little ones tummy.  Thank you, Lord, for the many perks of my Taxi Mama job!

Time for me to go pick up my son ~ Wendy

PS – My handsome husband just called, on his cellphone, to say that he is in the area, that our son is, and so he will pick him up.  I’ll be sure to put the shepherd’s pie in the oven on time.  Some days just turn out alright.  We won’t talk about yesterday…  Suffice to say: God is good – all the time!

“The horse is made ready for the day of battle,

but victory rests with the Lord,”  Proverbs 21:31

  1. Those horses are so beautiful. I’ve wanted a horse of my own since I was a little girl, but circumstances never allowed for it. But I do believe that dreams do come true and that it’s not too late. Surprises and miracles can be just around the corner. We just have to notice them and give thanks for the opportunities that come our way. Thank you for you lovely story. It evoked some lovely childhood memories.

    1. Horses attract my attention too. I wonder what it is like to be bonded to a special one? It won’t surprise me to see them in heaven… they are too beautiful not to be.

    2. don’t ever give up on a dream ~ especially since God places desires in our heart and will honour them, eventually…. it took over 40 years but I finally got a horse, Praise the Lord!

      1. You are so blessed and, yes, I have learned never to give up on my God-given dreams. I have seen the fulfilment of so many of them – from ‘instantly’ to ‘many years’. I think the secret is to really believe and then to trust and act as though it already is so, not forgetting to be grateful for all the blessings that we already have in our lives.

    1. Thank you Caddo! The other mare in the photo is expecting a baby, too. So there are actually four horses in the photo. Maybe I’ll get to take a photo of another baby if I am at the right place, at the right time!

  2. …you got my attention with the pic of horses!!! love the baby’s tail <3 I've always said horses are special to God because they are mentioned in the Bible and not many animals are. Also love that proverbs 21:31 ~ discovered it this summer when I saw it tattoed on the back of an Olympic archers hand!

  3. I think moms especially could write volumes about the things that happen while being taxi mamas…what our kids say, what they argue about, what they read, and on and on. As expensive as gas is (and I’ve got a lumbering SUV), I enjoy being L.’s “school bus”. We don’t see many horses, but we have seen longhorn cattle, armadillos, snakes, and a deer that I was thankfully able to avoid!

    What beautiful pictures of the mother and son horses!

    1. I’ve never seen an armadillo! My favorite conversation, I heard while we were in the car, was when our oldest son asked his newborn brother if he had seen the big truck that just drove by. It was so sweet! It was their first ride together as we drove home from the maternity ward… ( My husband was driving)
