Many times in my youth the path led me away from the 'straight and narrow.' It took me places I shouldn't have gone. Just when it seemed there was no hope, a stretch of road such as this would come along and get me back on track. Sometimes it was a friend who led me back and walked with me. Other times it was a faithful pet walking into what looked like paradise that showed me the way. Luckily I always found my way back. The past few years it has been the thoughts of family that has helped straighten my steps. Especially those who look to you for guidance. I am sure the road ahead won't remain this straight, but all those curves and detours of the past has shown me where not to go. Sometimes that is just as important as knowing where to go. When I look back, it wasn't the getting there that was important. It was the going.
Nothing expresses freedom like a unbridled horse running free. Nothing displays pride more than a head held high, a straight back and assuredness of gait. Nothing gives hope like the setting sun on a free nation. On January 20, 2009--the United States of America took an historic step into the future. The preservation of our children and their childrens way of life is at stake. History will judge if their future was safe.
I took this photo Saturday night. I hope you like it. Here is a little information on the Wolf Moon. The full moons were given names by the Native American in what is now the Northern and Eastern United States. The Algonguin Tribe named the full moons to keep track of the seasons. There have been some variations from tribe to tribe, but basically they are very close to the original. The early settlers continued the use of the names. Following is a list of these names: January---Wolf Moon
