15 April 2015 wed morning :}

It's been a month since I posted the daily journal. I just hadn't felt like sitting here at the computer desk.
I've had such a difficult time because of the breathing. But I finally saw a Pulmonologist last Thursday :]  He told me my trouble is in my throat. Not that it's a good thing, but at least it's not my lungs :]
So I did some research and found out about it. That in it's self has been very helpful, no more stressing about what's wrong. Now I'm waiting to see a speach therapist to help me learn to breath properly to help this problem. I'm already able to clean the corral a bit easier. But it helps :]
I haven't even felt like writting in my journal.
Taking the ponies back down to Michael's on Sunday so he can work them since I am still now able to.
But the JWT is still a go, I just have to get better. Time to start getting things ready to go :]

Elder's Meditation of the Day April 15


Elder's Meditation of the Day April 15
"When people live far from the scenes of the Great Spirit's making, it's easy for them to forget his laws."
--Walking Buffalo, STONEY
Society today is way off track. Unfortunately, many Indian people are caught up in these modern times. The Elders are telling us we must wake up! We must come back to the culture because this is where His laws are. If we don't follow these laws, we will be unhappy. We cannot do things just because everybody is doing them. This does not make it right. We must follow what the Great Spirit says we must do. We need to pray hard for the courage to come back and live according to the culture. It will be difficult at first but worth it in the end. We must teach our children the culture.
Great Spirit, today, let me listen to the warnings of the Elders.

Elder's Meditation of the Day April 13


Elder's Meditation of the Day April 13
"Once you make a friend, a friend never leaves you, even to death. So a friend is really hard to find."
--Wallace Black Elk, LAKOTA
Once, an Elder told me he made a decision to be my friend. He said this friendship wasn't based on my behavior or how I acted; he said the friendship was based on his decision. He decided to be my friend. This friendship has happened like he said. Even if I don't see him for a long time, or if I get mad at him, he has never changed his decision. This is true friendship.
Great Spirit, I'm glad you are this kind of Friend.
