How in the world do white horses enter into this blog? Well, white horses are rare, like shooting stars. The next time you see one, make a wish. Wishing, dreaming, pursuing is the first step toward achieving your heart's desire.
What will you find on these pages? Talk about life. I'm “The Scout,” as in the covered wagon days, when a rider went out to search the terrain for danger, or for the best water, or the safest camping place.

gratitude rocks? The story is that an African man visited a friend in the US.
When the African got home his son was quite ill. He worried and wrote to his
American friend asking for help. His
friend in the US sent him a gratitude rock chosen especially for him. The
African held the rock, gave thanks for the health of his son, and his son
recovered. He wrote to his friend thanking him and asked for more rocks to sell
to his friends.
I think I ought
to follow suit and sell gratitude rocks.
One can always get their own gratitude rock, but if a rock is packaged
well and comes with a quote as well as suggestions of something to be grateful
for—so much the better. It doesn't always have to be the big things we are grateful for. We can be grateful for the tuna fish sandwich we had for lunch.

miracles that happened, and I would happily post stories.
