How I Found my Feather.

Around five years ago I took my sister and a friend camping. We camped at 20 Mile Bay, which I came to learn is a camp ground built on an ancient Chahalis tribal village of St’epsum. It was late and my sister needed to use the outhouse. She asked if I could go with her, I said okay. While I was waiting outside the outhouse I thought, I will pee too. I turned off my head lamp and proceeded to squat. When done, I turned on my headlamp, and while starting to stand up, I looked down and right in front of me lay a feather. I couldn’t believe my eyes, as I have been asking the Creator for a feather for a long time. However, feathers come when we are ready and I needed to be patient. That feather that was placed before me was the most beautiful feather I ever saw. I thank Creator each day for it and for the guidance it has given me.
