read by Damion's father, Mike

Apache Blessing

May the sun bring you new strength by day,
May the moon sofltly restore you by night.
May the rain wash away your fears
And the breeze invigorate your being.

May you, all the days of your life,
Walk gently through the world
And know its beauty,

Now you will feel no rain, for each will shelter the other.
Now you will feel no cold, for each will warm the other.
Now you will feel no solitude, for each will be company to the other.
Now you are two persons, but both will lead one life.
Go now to your dwelling to begin the days of your life together,
And may your days be good and long upon the earth.

Treat yourselves and each other with respect,
And remind yourselves often of what brought you together.
Give the highest priority to the tenderness, gentleness and kindness that your connection deserves.
When frustration,difficulty and fear assail your relationship -
As they threaten all relationships at one time or another -
Remember to focus on what is right between you,
Not only the part which seems wrong.
In this way, you can ride out the storms when clouds hide the face of the sun in your lives -
Remembering that even if you lose sight of it for a moment, the sun is still there.
And if each of you takes responsibility for the quality of your life together,
It will be marked with abundance and delight.
