Only hold on to what you need to get by today and share the rest with everyone else.

Last weekend Susan and i went to the inter-tribal ceremonial that is held in Gallup every year.

Nations of native Americans from all over the country come to dance and celebrate. We didn’t make it to the rodeo, but there was a pretty good parade. Dance performances and a competition powwow. In the powwow different types of songs and dancing were held and judges observed and ranked both the drummers and dancers.

During the powwow the MC told a story about the winner of the 50/50 raffle. I can’t do justice to the story in retelling it, but  the gist was that the winner had no money, ran out of gas on the way here, but now had won the 75$ 50/50 raffle.

The MC went on to say that this story  was proof of what his parents had always told him. Only hold on to what you need to get by today and share the rest with everyone else.
