feet here on earth?"

One Solstice two
women, one an elder one young, went camping. They rode horses as far as they
could, then hiked up a steep mountain. By the time they had pitched their tent, made supper and
cleaned up they were pretty well bushed. The elder lady asked the younger to
make sure the horses were secure. The next morning the horses were gone.
The elder lady said
to the younger, "What happened to the horses, I thought you had tethered
them?" The younger lady said "I don't know, ask the Goddess, because
I was so tired last night I just prayed to the Goddess to take care of the
horses, I don't know what happened I prayed three times." The elder replied "It is good that you have
faith but to ask the Goddess to tether the horses you would have to offer her your
hands because she has no others."
You are the Goddess's
hands. ( A Navajo Story)
