O'siyo Oginalii. Tsilugi!
( Hello Friends. Welcome!)

~The Earth is our Mother, Care for her; honor all your relations.
Open your heart and soul the the Great Spirit.
All life is sacred; treat all beings with respect.
Take from the earth what is needed and nothing more.
Do what needs to be done for the good in others.
Give constant thanks to the Great Spirit for each new day.
Speak the truth, but only of the good in others.
Follow the rhythms of nature; rise and retire with the sun.
Enjoy life's journey, but leave no tracks.~

Dedication to My Family - Prayer Request

I've been posting to this blog for a few weeks now and know that it goes in all kinds of different directions.
Most of the oh so lovely blogs that I've seen have been related to one subject and one subject only...
but not mine, which should give you an idea of my personality.
Now that I've realized that I can do anything that I please with this tool I'd like to do a dedication to my family.
I'm 31 years old and live in the mountain of North Georgia.

I have 3 boys:
Gabriel who is 15 and well over 6 feet tall

He is very, very much like me. He is my angel.

I have Gideon who is 8, sometimes going on 50.

He is the "old soul" of the family.

Then theres Jullian...he's 5

He is the free spirit of the family and has no fear.

I live with my partner Danny, who is a very strange mix of ex military, punk rock, rockabilly and hooligan (a Triumph reference).

As for me, well I am the "Hippie" and "black sheep" of the family and I dont mind being it one bit now.

I love what I do and I love my family.

My mother, who's always been the greatest friend that I've ever had...even when I didn't like it...

She gives me the gifts of the love of nature and knowing the value of faith (in whatever), unconditional love and goodness of heart.

My father, who has loved me (in his own way) no matter what.

He give me the gifts of "the struggle" and making it through it all. He gives me my toughness and stubbornness of head that has gotten me through the hardest paths in my life.

And last, but not least...my best friend and spirit sister, Lacie, who is everything that I am not but everything that I am, all at the same time.

She give me the gifts of *true* friendship and connection.
Lacie is currently struggling with cervical cancer and I request any prayers and blessings that you may be able to give her.

In remembrance of KyLeighbug.

For all that have actually read this far....
Value your family for they are the greatest gifts you've ever been given.

Many blessings to you all,
