Cherokee Blessing

May the Warm Winds of Heaven

Blow softly upon your house.

May the Great Spirit

Bless all who enter there.

May your Mocassins

Make happy tracks

in many snows,

and may the Rainbow

Always touch your shoulder.

So I've just come to discover in the last few years that I am part Cherokee. I always knew that I was of Native American ancestry. But was not aware of the Cherokee. I stumbled across this blessing & really liked it so I thought I would share!!! :O)


  1. Michelle,

    This is a lovely post. I always enjoy Native American graphics and you chose some great ones. The blessing is perfect.

    Have a great day.

  2. Michelle,

    A great blessing from the Cherokee - as soon as the weather warms up and the grass turns back green, I'll post pictures from Hartwell, Ga., the Cherokee 'Center of the World'. You can read about it now though, on my blog, The Georgia Guideposts.

    Mary pointed me (everyone) to your blog, once you get going, you will love to blog - and are sure to meet many new friends!

  3. Hello!!! Between my dear man and myself [Bud mostly] we love the Native American Culture too.

    I was told by Bud's grandmother [who was deaf] that Bud and his dad were part Indian too. So, when I was talking with her at one point after Bud and I were first married, if Bud was part Indian, and she said to me [now keep in mind she was in her 80s at this time]....she said to me "Yes, I think he does have relatives in Indiana!! ROFLMAO

  4. Hi Michelle!

    I dropped over from your mom's blog to wish you a Happy Birthday! It looked like a great family time. You received some very lovely gifts, too.

    Also, welcome to blogland!!! Through blogging, I have met so many wonderful people, such as your mom! She is really a special lady in my book!!!

    Drop by and visit me sometime. I am the cat lady, having rescued them for years now. I have 33 inside living with me! I have them separated....12 ferals in my large laundry room, 8 here in my office, and then 13 living with me in my living areas. So it's not as bad as it sounds when I say I have 33. They are all spayed and/or neutered, free of disease, no fleas, no worms, etc. We are all living happily forever after. LOL I have tamed a lot of ferals. If Animal Control traps them, they are put to sleep immediately upon arrival at the how I ended up with 33! LOL

    I did read your other posts, too. All very interesting! I enjoyed reading the 25 things about you. My grandma always said we had some Indian in us, but I never got any more information out of her.

    ((( HUGS )))

  5. Michelle,

    Be sure to visit Deborah (and Anni too) as she often has historical information on her site. She also posts beautiful photos of her area.

    Hope you and Brandon had fun tonight. The other two will be beat when they get home.

    Love and hugs,
