I Received an Unexpected Gift From a Friend This Monday Morning
Carol often sends me videos via email. Since we each live on opposite coasts of the country, it is a wonderful way to keep in touch. This morning, starting at 5am because I have a really busy day in store, was very special. So special, that what I planned to post was no longer on the schedule. I just had to share.
Thanks Carol. I really love this one. Not only did it touch my heart but it offered a wonderfully profound viewpoint on our world and how we treat it. That I found especially important as the world at large is finally looking at what is happening to our planet and what we can do to change the course of our own future.
Like almost everyone I know, I am a great fan of YouTube. I often include Native American characters in my books, not because of trends but because I have Native American heritage through my paternal family line.
My grandfather was a wonderful man. Slow to anger, quick to smile and the most quietly spoken person I have ever known. My favorite memory of him was him guiding my hands to pound 16 penny nails into a 2×4. It may not sound like much here, but for a little girl to learn to handle tools was just not done in those years. I wanted to help him and my father so much. I remember his smile and his offer to show me how. I felt so loved in that moment. I was five years old. Every time I pick up a hammer, I remember him and his skill in building anything. Most of all, I remember his love for a child, for all children.
Iveta is a new artist for me. I will definitely be watching and hoping to see more videos from her. I hope you enjoy this video as much as I do. Have wonderful day everyone.

I’ve had a soft spot in my heart for the Native Americans for as long as I can remember. Because I have no Native American blood, I have no idea why I feel such a love for them, except for the sorrow I’ve always felt for the way they were treated. That’s why I made my two main characters in Tall Pines Sanctuary Native American from the Ute and Comanche tribes.
The Native Americans have a special kind of wisdom and understanding about God’s creation and God Himself. They may call Him something other than God, but if you study what they say and believe, you know they are worshipping the same God we know and love. Thank you for this beautiful video, Lacey.
Hi Sharon, Thank you for the lovely comment. My grandfather was such a special man. Without making a big thing of it, he taught me to look at nature and people in a way that has stayed with me throughout my life. He imparted his wisdom to me and to my father who carried on his legacy. The Farm is a tribute to him, my grandmother who married him in an era when his heritage was not appreciated, my father and the wisdom they shared with me. No chemicals are used here. Not to be trendy but to respect the earth and all she provides. To respect God and the universe he created for us. So many visitors comment on the land, the trees, the animals and the lack of things like swarms of mosquitos that are very prevalent in this area at certain times of the year. We have green pastures that look as though I constantly fertilize. I don’t. Nature cares for itself when man listens, or in this case woman.
It is my wish and my hope that humanity starts looking at what it is destroying. Civilized man tried to eliminate the Native tribes all over the world. Despite their best effort the Native Peoples have survived. Their wisdom still lives. They have so much to share if civilized man would just listen.
