I can't believe my family reunion trip to Mt. Pleasant, Michigan., is almost over. We've all had such a great time enjoying each other's company.
I broke down crying again this evening when my family presented me with an eagle feather. It was a nice gesture from them and I was very thankful and appreciative for receiving it.
When I say I broke down crying again, earlier this weekend we spent time with some of our Anishnabe elders in part of a traditional wellness workshop and I'm very thankful I got to experience that with my aunt's and my mom. Lately I've been carrying around a lot of stress and it was time to let it go, so I'd like to thank Pumpkin for her kind words, it meant a lot.
Other than that, we've just been eating everyday and spending time a lot of time with relatives we haven't seen in a while. Gah, talk about stuff not having to do every day, here are some of the things we've done since we've been back in Michigan - Elders lunch, Gun Lake Veteran's Feast, Saginaw Chippewa Fall Feast, Saginaw Chippewa Veteran's Feast, Anthony's football game, going to the "Men of Playgirl" stripper show at the Soaring Eagle Casino and then closing out our weekend with a big family re-union dinner earlier this evening.
Alright guys, I got one more big activity coming up before we head back home and that's my comedy show for the college students at GVSU *Grand Valley State University* this upcoming Tuesday and I still gots to work out my performance routine for them.
Okay, I hope the each of you has a wonderful and joyous holiday with your loved ones because you know what, believe it or not, all of you are loved!
