Love, determination, prayer and angels help Mitzi

They were an unlikely couple to have become best friends - Jessica and Bob.

She was a 13 year old preacher’s kid and he was a retired cowboy in his late 70s. And then there was Mitzi. The three fit together sort of like a love triangle. However, Mitzi was a horse, not a person. She was the reason that Jessica and Bob got together in the first place.

Jessica - my granddaughter - was raised in a pastor’s home. She was home schooled and somewhat sheltered from the world. Most of her acquaintances were from her church or the youth group. Her dad didn’t have a 9:00 - 5:00 job like most dads, but was a full time pastor and his involvement with people didn’t stop at the end of the day when he stepped out of his office.
