Grandfather and ... by colt51 Grandfather and ... by colt51
The actual full title is:
"Grandfather and the Three Brothers"

EDIT July 8, 2009: I dedicate this piece to :icongreymoccasin: and his family. A member of that family is fighting cancer, the money has run out, and the rug was immediately pulled out from under their feet. They need our prayers/good vibes/wishes/hopes/love and support more than ever. Read his reply to :iconsleepswithasmile: [link]


A Prayer:


All over the world the faces
of living ones are alike.

With tenderness they have
come up out of the ground.

Look upon your children
that they may face the winds
And walk the good road to the Day of Quiet.

Grandfather Great Spirit
Fill us with the Light.
Give us the strength to understand,
And the eyes to see.

Teach us to walk the soft Earth
as relatives to all that live.

A "Thank You" was never needed, my friend. I know where your heart dwells, for we are Brothers. I am honored that you like it, though.

Thank you, dear heart. It breaks my heart that they are having to go through this, but they are showing the strength and resolve of those who know that the final victory is at hand. Sometimes, that victory is in letting go.

I lost my sister when I was 17 so I know how these things affect you deep inside. My heart goes out to them. :hug:

It always hurts me to hear things like that. I guess I feel like all of the folks I care about should never have pain in their lives. Not very realistic, I know, but I sometimes prefer the dream that this world is more perfect than it really is.

I think only a very few lucky people get through their entire lives pain free, be it physical or emotional. Sad, but true. :(

Honestly, I just re-loaded the original file. I had to get the updated information seen, so folks could add Grey and his family to their prayers and thoughts.

I originally made it so I could send it as a Birthday Gift to my second Son. Thank goodness there was a sale on Prints this last weekend. I got it for just less than 1/3 the usual price, and it has already been shipped.

But, after seeing the latest news from Grey, I had to also dedicate it to him and his. :shrug:

Glad you like it, sweetie.

Yeah, my thoughts exactly. (well, not EXACTLY, since mine also contained many swear-words concerning the intelligence of the one who came up with that limit)

Thank you, my dear heart. :hug:
