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.)

Well, I'm not much of a cowgirl although I was born and raised (reared according to my speech teacher) in Texas. I'm willing to learn and take my turn circling the wagons and praying for our sisters in need.

Gittyup horsies. (Is that a start at being a cowgirl).

Oh you wonderful gals!!! I am here riding my mule, "Old Never Quit". He is a great mule.

I will be in the circle and praying real hard.

You are all loved and in our arms. When a breeze brushes the sagebrush, it is all of us, leaning towards you, softly praying for good news. When you awake in the night, scared, we are all in there with you, behind the curtains, so you are never alone. You are treasured, each of you, loved and cherished.

Hugs, Shirlann
