    An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life. "A fight is going on inside me", he said to the boy.

    "It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is evil - he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego." He continued, "The other is good - he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. The same fight is going on inside you - and inside every other person, too."

    The grandson thought about it for a moment and then asked the old man, "Grandfather, which wolf will win?"

    The old Cherokee simply replied, "The one I feed."

    From my Daddy --

    When, as an adult, I whined about something he said, "HoneyBunch, that is what life IS -- one d---ed thing after another."

    I think of that often and it makes me laugh --- :)
