# 122 A Cane

" At the end of every life there is a cane"
This quote was from my mother. I am not sure if it was life observations or personal experience that gave her this wisdom. Her cane is one of her personal items I have kept these many years.
 I may need it one day!
I spent the weekend west of Ft Worth at the Acton Nature Center selling books and talking to people about birdhouses. There were lots of canes and walking sticks in attendance. I saw proof that as we get older we appreciate things around us even more. I have expanded here more than once the benefit of slowing down and enjoying simpler things. That being said it was a busy couple of days for me. I did manage to work in a nap one day that helped considerably! Book sales of my  Woodcrafting for Birds and Wildlife, have gone very well at the event and  in general the past few weeks.

Psalm 23

The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
    He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
    he refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths
    for his name’s sake.
Even though I walk
    through the darkest valley,[a]
I will fear no evil,
    for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,  they comfort me.
