In my blog I plan to chat about nature, crafts, baking, gardening, beekeeping, family, and whatever else seems appropriate at the time. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

Two wolves

On our way to South Carolina, we found a sign stating "Visit historic Jonesborough" in Tennessee. So we did. It's the quaintest cutest little town. And apparently one of the oldest towns in Tennessee. The stores were closed on Saturday evening and Sunday morning, and that's when we were there, so we went window shopping. In the window on one of the stores there was this.....

One evening and 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 asked his Grandfather, "which wolf wins?"

The old Cherokee simply replied, "the one you feed."
