Feast of Days. New day.

My boys are studying Native American culture this year. Cherokee Feast of Days: "An invitation to come sit down for the Feast of Days that begins new every morning. When the sun breaks through the far side of the woods and sprays gold beneath ancient oaks, it is time to turn over a new leaf and celebrate a new beginning. The Cherokee way is to know the past is gone. Though a thread still links us to it in many ways, it no longer holds us captive, no longer keeps our feet on the Trail of Tears. We have new wisdom and understanding, and we dare to put down yesterday to reach for a new day. We study to be quiet, take care of business, work with our hands and rejoice in our spirits. The best is yet to come." Nice, eh?
