We each are given the gift of free will and choices. It is our responsibility to choose wisely, how we share this gift toward the world and to realize that ultimately every action and choice we make touch something outside of ourselves. In the end it all comes back to us. I choose the path of love, compassion and understanding which is the path of the "warrior" and brings me closer to the Creator. It creates in my world a place of inner peace.

~ Quero Apache Prayer ~

Looking behind, I am filled with gratitude.
Looking forward, I am filled with vision.
Looking upwards, I am filled with strength.
Looking within, I discover peace.

~ Cherokee Prayer Blessing ~

May the Warm Winds of Heaven
Blow softly upon your house.
May the Great Spirit
Bless all who enter there.
May your Mocassins
Make happy tracks
in many snows,
and may the Rainbow
Always touch your shoulder.

~ Chief Dan George ~

May the stars carry your sadness away,
May the flowers fill your heart with beauty,
May hope forever wipe away your tears,
And, above all, may silence make you strong.

~ Cherokee Prayer ~

O' GREAT SPIRIT
help me always to speak the truth quietly,
to listen with an open mind when others speak,
and to remember the peace that may be found in silence.

~ Native American Prayer ~

Oh, Great Spirit
Whose voice I hear in the winds,
And whose breath gives life to all the world,
hear me, I am small and weak,
I need your strength and wisdom.
Let me walk in beauty and make my eyes ever behold
the red and purple sunset.
Make my hands respect the things you have
made and my ears sharp to hear your voice.
Make me wise so that I may understand the things
you have taught my people.
Let me learn the lessons you have
hidden in every leaf and rock.

I seek strength, not to be greater than my brother,
but to fight my greatest enemy - myself.
Make me always ready to come to you
with clean hands and straight eyes.
So when life fades, as the fading sunset,
my Spirit may come to you without shame.

(translated by Lakota Sioux Chief Yellow Lark in 1887)

    emoticon emoticon emoticon CRAZY "OLD LADY" QUOTES emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I believe my house is haunted.
    Every time I look in my mirror, a crazy old lady
    stands in front of me, so I can't see my reflection.

    Actually you can have a healthy sex life well into your later years
    assuming you can stand the sight of someone your age naked.
    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    Don't think of them as hot flashes,
    think of it as your inner child playing with matches.

    "And another thing Francis, all this fuss about Same Sex marriage.
    I just don't see what the big deal is.
    Harvey and I have been having the same sex for 54 years.
    and to tell you the truth, it isn't worth getting all upset over."
    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    When I get old, I'm not going to sit around knitting.
    I'm going to be clicking my "Life Alert" button
    to see how many hot firefighters show up

    "What kind of tea is that?"
    "I don't know, but I found it in my grandson's room.".

    Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.
