Thank God It’s Thanksgiving!

One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people. He said, “My son, the battle is between two ‘wolves’ inside us all. One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority and ego. The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.” The grandson thought about it for a minute And then asked his grandfather,”Which wolf wins?” The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”

So I am back to not sleeping. I guess I am worried about bills and stuff that needs to be done. I can make some minimum payments and we’ll be fine until some benefits kick in. It’s just crazy to be in this position.

At first I was angry – and I mean like for 15 minutes. Then I was sad and that’s because of the relationships that have been formed. And now – I am thankful.

  1. Awesome wolf story. Thanks.

  2. I’ve really been out of the loop. Peg, I’m sorry to hear about you job. It’s sad when you form relationships, because no matter how many times you say your going to keep in touch most people don’t.

    Keep your chin up everything happens for a reason. It sounds like you already found it.
