Looking back over my life
Reliving each year
I feel a smile
Come over my face
And tears running down my eyes
As I realize my age
Is creeping quickly upon me
And soon my own
Children will be walking
In my footsteps
Looking back over
My life and theirs
So without hesitation
I must say it now
I love you my children
You are and always
Have been the best
Gift in my life
My biggest accomplishment
An absolute perfection
I will always look
Upon each of you
And tears in my eyes.

Sitting around the fire the great warrior smoked his pipe. Looking up to the skies he mouthed thanks to his God for allowing him to live. Blood dripping on his back, rough patches on his hands, made his tribe fear him with great respect.
Black Hawk was the chief over his kingdom. He fought the demons that entered his brother’s minds at night. He led his warriors to win many battles. He wore many ropes around his neck of trophies he had taken.
Dark skinned, muscular, a strong jaw line gave great character to his looks. Women adorned themselves in bright paints to only hope to catch his eye. Although he was under the law of marriage he bed many women who had trouble baring a child.
He had led his people to this barren land, far a way from others. He built pits and pulled rocks to form a pool. He took great pride in his title as chief. He taught the young males how to fight. He showed them how to sharpen their arrows and how to bring meat to the table.
He led each male to manhood, marking them his property. The females he taught to wash the clothing and how to cook over the flames. He taught them that it was their duty to respect each grown male; that some day they may become the princess in a new bed.
And tonight, he had fought a mighty war. A stranger passing through the valley. He watched the enemy as he sneaked behind one of the bushes and watched the women. When Black Hawk could no longer see the dark shadow he took out his knife and met the darkness and cut his head off. Scalping and hanging the black hair over his door he once again proved his power and mightiness. Another battle won, a new moon rising, a red glow of victory, he sat smoking his pipe, waiting for sleep to come.

Today’s Follow Friday is a lovely woman who cares for her brother full time. Her name is Terry, Teresa. Her brother, Al, has MSA – Multiple System Atrophy which is a Neurological disorder caused by degeneration of the nerves in the brain. I am not going to link to that here, you can find the information on Terry’s blog.
She also sketches when she has the time and is improving, and getting really good at it.
Terry has placed her own life on hold in order to care for him, and I don’t know about anyone else, but I think that takes a lot more time, a lot more courage, a lot more internal strength and a lot more of everything than I think that I could ever give.
Al has told Terry that he feels he will not be here for Christmas as God, Angels and their mum has…
