What Is Life? A Peach!

I have always loved reading about Native Americans. Ever since I was a child I was fascinated by them and wanted to grow up to be a Native American. Children!

I always have this quote in my mind, from Crowfoot, “What is life, is it the flash of a firefly in the night. It is the breathe of a buffalo in the wintertime. It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset”.

Whenever I am at odds with myself, with life, I think about this often. I want to try and enjoy my life. I want people in my life that care about me. That want to be next to me all the time, before it is too late. What are the things you want in life? Are you able to stay happy while you are trying to obtain them? What are your secrets?

This Too Shall Pass

It was one of those days. ┬áRainy, dreary, the works. But I could not help but think that this too serves it’s purpose. That the earth needs the rain, that we need cloudy days in order to really appreciate the sun filled ones. It was hard for me to concentrate today, yet I made it through the day. I remember being a small girl, loving to read on rainy days. I hope you too can find meaning and powerful, motivating memories in gloomy days. Because this too shall pass.

What thoughts help you get through the rain?
