    I have an awsome BO!!!!!!

    My BO is still fighting her cancer and I have still been helping out with cleaning and chores 3-4 times a week (im the only boarder at this time and then she owns 4 horses and 7 minis). She is going to have atleast one more surgery and then another round of chemo... but was well enough to make it out to the barn for a little bit yesterday.

    She handed me a card and said thanks for everything you have done for me and then gave me a big hug. Then she also told me that as long as I board there and still help out some she will not accept any money from me (I still want to help out though by buying shavings and feed though) She was then getting cold and weak so she went back into the house. I took a look into the card and she has given me a $200 American Express Gift Card!!!!! I feel kinnda bad taking it though, but tonight my BF and I are going to pick out some badly needed clothes for me.

    I wish I could help her out more but I don't know how. I just want her healthy again...

    A really touching post. Always good to hear there are people out there who are truly thankful for what they have. Good for you, you obviously mean a lot to her. You should give yourself a pat on the back.

    If she won't take money then keep cleaning and bring shaving and feed.. that's always a blessing :) the place that I keep my mare at is my best friends parents house and they only make me pay for her food .. I clean my own stall but I try and get out there at least 4 times a week to feed and then I bring bags of grain and such as a thank you ... I think that they appreciate those things ...

    High five for helping her out! I bet that it means more to her then you even know :)

    Wow what a sweet lady, it's so nice that through everything she's going through she still has time to think about all the other stuff. Good for you for doing what you do and like everyone else said, just keep it up and bring stuff.

    Very touching post. She sounds like a great lady, and she's lucky to have you!

    I will probably just help with shavings... Her grain is a custom mix and she has a source for her hay.

    Ya she is a great person, In March I will have been boarding there for a year. I just had a good feeling when I went to look at the place. She has basically given me free rein of the place, tractor key, permission to move stuff around as I please, but I always ask just in case. The only downside to cleaning a lot is it takes away from time with my horse. By the time I get off of work, drive up there, clean, and feed it is getting later and she doesnt have an indoor. But summer is coming!!!

    Thanks everyone and have a great day!!!

    Aww, that is so nice that you know someone like that. She seems like a good person!

    Angel -- oftentimes when someone is in need of help, it's the TIME and the WORK that they are short of. You have been there for her. People that don't have time may be able to help with $, or she may have other $ resources, but time and physical abilities are not so easily had in today's busy world.

    If she couldn't afford the gift card, she wouldn't have given it to you I'm sure. You have been a huge support for her for quite a while; I remember reading other posts about this situation. It can be harder to receive than to give, as you are seeing so it's probably important to her to be able to give back to you too in whatever way she can.

    Sending good wishes for this sad situation.

    Aww... that is really really sweet. I'm sorry to hear that she has cancer though. I hope she will get completely better. That is so nice of you as well, to be such a good friend and help her out.

    You are an awesome boarder! When I became seriously ill, a bunch of my boarders just moved out on me at once with no notice, even though everyone was being fed, turned out & immaculate stalls. Last week, one of themcame back to try & board here again. She said they all moved because they were afraid stuff would stop getting done if I got sicker. Guess what? I'm better & she still can't find a place to board God bless you, you are an angel!!
