If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop digging.
– Will Rogers
Letting the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier than putting it back.

Cowboys don’t sleep they just wait.
If cowboys picked wives like they pick horses they would have lifelong mates.
Courage is being scared to death and saddling up anyway!

A cowboy is not boots, spurs, hat or a love for John Wayne. It is who you are inside. It is how you treat those around you. It is giving of yourself before you give to yourself. It is a smile that comes from your heart and a howdy that comes from your deeds. A rodeo ride isn’t a prerequisite nor is it a requirement to be a cowboy. It isn’t being able to quote Lonesome Dove or talking about the time you saw Garth Brooks in concert. A cowboy has an aura like no one else. A cowboy makes those around him stand in awe of his wisdom, wit and true grit. He holds his mates hand as well as their heart. He treasures what others take for granted. He steps up when others step down and picks up those who stumble around him. A TRUE cowboy is solid, grounded and a gift from God. That is something no item bought at Sheplers or driven of the lot of a dealership can make.
