I always like this...

I know this email has been around and around but I really like it and wanted to share...


One evening an 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 then asked his grandfather 'Which wolf wins?'

The old Cherokee simply replied, 'The one you feed.'

This is wonderful!

We're going to a Tastefully Simple party this weekend. We've never been and are really looking forward to it!

Thanks for posting this. It amazes me how some people just want to feed that angry wolf.
I'll share this one with the family and friends.

Have a happy day (feeding the good wolf)

Just wanted to pop back over and tell you I posted this on my Facebook today, and people went nuts over it. I got 15 comments and I never get that many. I have friends who are putting it on their pages, so be ready to get it back soon.
Thanks
