Happy Holidays
Traditional Navajo teaching:
To be Thankful for whatever
weather Mother Earth provides.
If there is snow, bathe yourself, cleanse and awaken your senses.
If there are cold temps, breath deep, fill your lungs, and smell the earth.
For today,
 has been chosen for you.
open your arms, 
open your heart, 
open your mind.
Enjoy your stride.

Smile, sing, yell, dance,
embrace your journey.

May all your journey's be blessed
