Week Five: June 9 - June 15, 2019
When someone was ailing, our ancestors held them while not turning their back; they left a legacy of hope and understanding.
A legacy holds teaching moments; we will never live in the same manner as our grandparents; we can mimic their actions of authentic community living and care for each other. We may not have the resources to build significant buildings or to host extravagant parties, but we all have something priceless, everyone has it, and that is family.
The most excellent resource we have that we don’t have to go and search for, is the circle of family, by whatever definition, and whomever you choose to be family - the significant resource is there. We are all a part of something greater!
We are compassionate, and we are family.
Given the opportunity to find beauty from the smallest of items, like a pine needle, and craft it to create a basket, it shows the legacy of teaching. While we teach the next generation how to utilize their hands to make physical gifts, we teach them that compassion can not be bought or sold but shown to one another. Showing genuine care for another is not to be boasted about, but held humbly close to the heart.
Gift: Woven pine needle basket - We can take gifts from Mother Earth and pass them down from one generation to another.
