Hi everyone! My name is Falling Leaf and I am a member of the Southern Band Tuscarora Indian Tribe in Betrie Co., N.C. at Indian Woods Reservation. I get my Native blood through my fathers side. On my mothers I am German, Irish and Scotts and English, but the German is the strongest line. I am 1/4 maybe even more due to other branches of German ancestors, but my Grandfather was full German. His parent immagrated here in the early 1900's and could only speak a little broken English.
I am crippled now Dispersed OA. I also have Fibromyalgia, diabeties, vascular insuffencey, and other health ailments. I write poetry and have some on ecards and is published on Starlite Cafe. One poem is published in a book of poems. I have hopes of one day having a book published. I have alot of friends I have met through my writing, fellow authors and expect a life time relationship with them all.
I love to read and am a avid reader. I love animals, all animals tho I only have 2 precious Chihuahuas. they are both very spoiled and mama babies and very protective over me. I use to do alot of Native crafting, is beading, making dream cathers, that sort of thing. But stopped when the arthritis took to my hands and wrists. It became too painful for me to continue with them.
But most of all I love the Lord. I so very much want to do His will and walk hand in hand with Him, but as all humans do I sometimes fall very short. My faith is very strong in Him and I would gladly lay down my life for Him, as He laid down His for me. There is nothing or no one that can sway me, nor cause me to turn from Him as He is the only Truth in this world that is evil. America has tried to kick Him out, yet for those of us who love Him and follow Him, we will never stop talking about Him and we will always praise His Holy name. As you can see He is very much a part of my life.
I am married and have 4 children, one of which died when he was 15 yrs old. I am a grandmother 8 times!! I love to play computer games and email people. I stay in the house and raely get to go out because it is way too hard on me now. It gets lonely tho and I yearn for people. I use to be so active, went for walks that took anywhere's from 2 hrs to 4 hrs! Now I can"t hardley walk around in my house with my walker and my Dr doesn't want me to any way because he says I am going to fall and it is only grinding more bone from my knees. Knee replacement isn't an option with me. I'm a bad surgery risk.
So there you have it people, me in a nut shell so to speak! haha!! I hope I haven't bored you silly! You take care now you hear? Yeah I'm sure 'nough southern yall!! lol!!! Bye!
