Sorry is all we can say to those who are visiting for the very first time and to those who can only be here a short time. We have had a streak of cold, damp and cloudy weather. We are supposed to get a break from it mid week and then another dose of this stuff next weekend. Fortunately we are all a hearty bunch from hearty stock and we know how to deal with it from the many years we too were up north for the icky winters. We snuggle in, watch movies, play games, do our crafts but this is not what we came here for. Let a smile be your umbrella!!
I ran across  a little story this morning about an Indian Chief and his grandson. It has been a favorite of mine for a long time and I decided to share it with you today.
Here it is...

An old Cherokee chief was teaching his grandson about life…
“A fight is going on inside me,” he said to the boy. “It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves.
“One is evil – he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, self-doubt, and ego.
“The other is good – he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith.
“This same fight is going on inside you – and inside every other person, too.”
The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, “Which wolf will win?”
The old chief replied, “The one you feed.”
