The following are highlights of my Cowgirl Hall of Fame induction speech presented October 26, 2006.  I hope it inspires you to dedicate your life to purpose, patience and passion.

Thank you to my friends,

This award is truly a milestone, a coming of age and a realization that what you wish for truly can come true.

As a cowgirl, I would be remiss not to take this opportunity to acknowledge the special horses that have come into my life.  Each, in their own way has made me the better horsewomen I am today.

We are truly blessed to have the chance to thrive in a country that gives us the opportunity to pursue our dreams and goals.

As we walk life’s trails, we each have had the chance to experience our share of challenges and celebrations… Life is a learning opportunity and for us who choose to survive, it truly is a great life!

As we move toward the future, I continue to challenge myself and serve as a reminder to those of you who share a passion and purpose to stay strongly focused on your goals. We have allowed ourselves to be pushed to the front of the line and we are looked to as leaders for those who follow.

I invite anyone who has the patience to pursue excellence solely for the challenge, not the expectation of reward, to relish in the daily challenges that serve as a reminder that a well lived life is nothing more than a series of accomplished days.

With belief in our Heavenly Father, I continue to ask Him for wisdom, patience and purpose.

If I can help open doors to the possibilities of the friends, family and acquaintances that surround me, I will have accomplished my personal goals.

Thank you for sharing in this most humbling and most personal moments in time. Believe me when I say, wherever I travel, wherever my life’s path guides me, each of you and this moment will remain with me forever.

They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run and not be weary; and they shall walk and not faint.
—Isaiah 40:31


If you can't find the time to do it right the first time, when are you going to find the time to do it over?
