This has been a rough few days...
It is time for us to hook up our horses and circle our wagons around some of our dear sisters who need us the most right now.

Robin, Rhymee, Mena, Denise, Marsha, Katz & Sarah, Gwenn, Pennylane, Dianne, Shelliks and all who need some love and care from the sisterhood.

I will take the first watch.

(edited to add that since we started the circle, we have lost many angels mentioned above and others who were inside the circle.  Nicki/Chemosabi kept watch over the circle many nights for us. Now, she will watch over the campfire with the angels she joined tonight. Rest in Peace you beautiful friends, we love you all and will never forget you.)

I'm here having some of Niki's "one armed biscuits" bless her heart...and she's right, the mules can fend for themselves somewhere else...

I'll be here for a couple of hours....but I'm sending love, and prayers to all the sisters in need, even those who just read us but don't post...I'm sure there are plenty out there who need comfort and are too shy to ask...but we are here...

I'll take some biscuits and coffee, thank you. And I'll take the next watch, ok?

It's time to "COWBOY UP"

I think about this term, and what it's all about?
Well it's reaching deep inside when your DH has turned you out.
It's gettin' bucked off every bull that you've seen;
Going hungry, and telling yourself "I'm not starvin', just lean".

"COWBOY UP�

It's watching your friends go to the county fair;
And staying behind, cuz the fence is in need of repair.
It's knowing what's wrong, and doing what's right;
Though it means you're going home alone tonite.

"COWBOY UP"

It's what makes a cowboy tell it straight;
It's being in pain, and calling your gate.
It's having nothing, yet having it all;
It's brushing off the dust and knowing how to fall.

"COWBOY UP"

It's a spirit tried and true;
Like a guardian angel, it'll see you through.
So when you're down and things look rough;
Look deep within yourself, and

"COWBOY UP"...

Susan I love that !
I have one to share ~

Courage is easy when a tame horse you ride
When rivers are low and no clouds fill the skies,
But that�s not the test that must really apply
And there won�t always be tame horses to ride.

When the winds from the northwest, its teeth filled with snow,
And the temperature is dropping with each hour of the blow,
And you�re twenty miles from a warm bunkhouse fire,
You freeze where you stop if home�s not your desire.

When the water is rising with no way around
And a bunch of stray steers spread over the ground,
You�ll have to hold up there till the water goes down
Or force a fording where some may drown.

When the nights are so lonely that there is no familiar sound
And where you are at isn�t close to home ground,
Then its what you are made of, what you�ve seen and learned
That keeps you up and not getting burned.

You can be sure of yourself, the person you�ve become
When the world drops it�s load out where you come from.
You won�t whine or cry or make an excuse
But face that problem and not let it loose.

The days that will test you are always on the way
And you don�t run and hide to avoid the fray.
You grab on the problems and just tan their hide,
You made your own courage and tamed the horses to ride!

I absolutely love these inspirations... I have one also that is helping me..

When we walk to the edge of all the light we have,
And take a step into the darkness of the unknown,
We must believe one of two things will happen....
There will be something solid for us to stand on
Or we will be taught to fly.

My wagon has joined the circle; of course I have a modern wagon that has refrigeration so we can keep the wine cool and have all the fix's with the beans, biscuits, and other goodies!!! Fancy, it will be more than fine with me if you tend the animals - mules/horses not my thing!!

Oh, God, girls, my heart and my prayers goes out to these wonderful women. Thanks NS for starting this. I am up all kinds of hours, so I'll be sharing in many of the watches. Hope this circle just keeps growing and may these sisters feel the love.

Count me in also. Don't forget the donkeys either. They are such loving animals and once they are your friend they are your friend forever. I also have a 3 month old baby donkey that is full of spunk so count her in also.

Alaska Deb, I'm with you. I'm just so damn angry about all this. I want to kill cancer.

I love you all. Peace and comfort to all our sisters in need.
