Happy Birthday Susan

Happy Birthday Susan

An old Cherokee told his grand-son, "My son,there is a battle between two wolves inside us all

One is Evil. It is anger, jealousy, greed, resentment, inferiority, lies and ego.

The other is good. It is joy, peace, love ,hope, humility, kindness, empathy, and truth.

The boy thought about it and asked "Grandfather,which wolf wins?"

The old man quietly replied

"The one you feed"

  • Very true and love the picture. I thought it was you for a moment. Bless your Susan and you. And her wonderful surgeon too of course. Bev x

  • Thanks Bev I wish...I wish. Problem is that she looks so young people ask her if I am her father. That's the problem when you get old. They say men age better...not in my case. I batted out of my league here


  • You will never be old Will :p Bev x

  • Sorry Bev....one day I will have to grow up....But not today

  • Thank you Bev for your kind words. All the best ..Susan

  • Hello Ruby

    Many thanks for your kind birthday wishes, I am not getting younger but this is my 17th year at being 49 so I am still a spring chicken.


  • Very happy birthday Susan ๐ŸŽ‚. It's a very special and wonderful one x

  • Thank you Dedalus for your kind comments. Yes a very special one


  • Happy Birthday Susan. So happy to see you looking so well.

    Burraboy : It is so good to see your message about the old man talking to his grandson, and telling him that if you feed the goodness in you the goodness will win. The same story was quoted by a reporter in The Times newspaper in England a few months ago by someone who had left his coat on the train and thought he would never see it again; but it was handed in and returned to him. The same happened to my 40 year old son last week. He left his very nice coat on the train with money in the pocket, his work pass and other things. The coat was handed in and he claimed it from lost property. I as his mother am so grateful to the person who found it. I do think that the vast majority of people do 'feed the goodness in them'.

  • So True Sarcoid, we owe so much to the American Indian, I believe that they were more advanced than the white man, such a pity that they are not recognized and accepted.


  • Hello Sarcoid

    Thank you for your kind wishes for my birthday. Never thought I would be here to celebrate it.

    I owe so much to all who supported me for the past three years
