A Cowgirl’s prayer

Daily Oats: food for the horse lover’s soul

Cowgirl up! “Cowgirl up” is an expression that means to rise to the occasion, not to give up, and to do it all without whining or complaining. It is easy to say Cowgirl-up, however  it takes a true cowgirl at heart to live up to the true meaning.

Another quote from Dale Evans is ” The cowgirl faces life head on, lives by her own lights and makes no excuses.

Dale Evans and Buttermilk

However,  to Cowgirl up still  means you might need a helping hand once and a while.  I have read in all your  comments of some of the hardships that so many cowgirls are facing in these hard times.

Cowgirl-up does not mean that we do not face health issues, financial issues, relationship problems or worse the loss of a some one close including our 4-legged ones.   Especially in these economically hard times, staying on the trail can be difficult and  to some it might seem almost impossible.

Sometimes, even a hard-core Cowgirl  just needs someone to talk to and share a moment of the burden.

Ever see an old-fashioned Barn raising, even on TV? I am talking about that,  an old fashioned barn raising, where we neighbors and friends get  together, bring what they can, hold each other up, and at the end of the day still be able to offer prayer, and thanks.

For today,  let’s stand together.  Either leave your comments here, or offer support, prayer, companionship on our Facebook group A Cowgirl’s Prayer

Remember, a Cowgirl’s heart always has hope.
Be the whinny  Just because it feels so damn good!

  1. what great advice. and so seldom done. i wonder why? have we simply forgotten how to care, or show we care? i had a shocking time for the past 5 years, one disaster after another, all different, and few people took the time to show a bit of care. some actually turned and walked away. hopefully this international crisis we all face will change people’s outlook to one of helping and giving support, for all people in all situations. keep up the good work!

  2. Hi Roberta – thank you so very much for your inspirations – I love them –
    especially the poem the other day about handicapped kids. I volunteer for “Heroes on Horseback” – a program for handicapped kids and this poem brought me to tears.
    This one, “Cowgirl Up” has been one of my inspirations since I religiously watched Roy and Dale’s every show. She was a hero of mine. I certainly know about adversity and “Cowgirl Up” saved me mentally, because I AM ONE!!

  3. WE need each other. Together we can make not only a difference in times that are trying; we can also make a bigger difference collaborating together on things that matter.

    For me the Cowgirl spirit is about leaving behind the “can’t” and finding our “YES!”

    Annie Oakley became a sharp shooter to feed her family. She knew tough times and better times. More than that, she was willing to go out there and leave her mark.

    I believe cowgirl’s have the passion, the courage and the grit to see our way through those times and by supporting each other we can really create a network of passionate, innovate, creative, successful women!
    Happy Trails,

  4. Being a cowgirl at my age I am just trying to out run old age on a fast horse!

  5. Love it! I think sometimes we spend so much time putting on our boots and making our way through the muck, we forget to take time just to vent our frustration at the situations we face.

  6. I think of the greatest commandment, to love the Lord your God with all of your heart and love your neighbor as yourself. The world would be a different place if we took a moment to treat others as we would want to be treated. Thanks for your insight!
