  • Made me proud!

    This weekend my family and I were at a powwow and something happened to make me feel extremely proud. I just wanted to share this special little act with you. . .

    I have a daughter that is 8-years old. At times she can be pretty selfish and self indulging in her young behavior.

    We were at a powwow this weekend and she was given a handful of money for dancing during her exhibition.

    Without blinking an eye, she took this money and on her own, placed it on the drum that sang for her exhibition.


    I was soooo proud of her for knowing the right thing to do - on her own.

    a little tear came to my eye as her proud father and I said to myself,

    "Yes. . . This is what it's really ALL about!"

        Kind of gives ya goosebumps when they do something like that - doesn't it?

        That is most definitely what "it's all about!"

                  Stace and Kiyannii,

                  Yes. She just turned 8.

                  Kiyannii,

                  A MIW was sitting beside us when it happened. The MIW had been giving encouragement to my daughter throughout the powwow!

                  Stace,

                  I just met someone that recently moved here and knows you!


                  To everyone who responded. Thank you for your words of encouragement. Someday I hope some elder's look and my two daughters and say, "Those girls were raised right!" *L

                                A cold March wind danced around the dead of night in Dallas as the doctor walked into the small hospital room of Diana Blessing. She was still groggy from surgery. Her husband, David, held her hand as they braced themselves for the latest news. That afternoon of March 10, 1991, complications had forced...

                                Honestly I can't not find the origin of this story. All I can say it is one that my mother and grandmother shared with my brother and I as kids. I do know that my mother said that her grandmother used to tell this story to her when she was a child. My mother passed in 1984 at age 39, my grandmother...
