Nothing Better

I had a busy weekend last weekend for all the right reasons.  I got to go fishing with all my sons!  Brent and Michael came with me early on Friday and Paul and David got up even earlier and we went on Saturday.  We were on the river by 6 am both days, which seems very early on a weekend but it’s not really when you’re fishing. It probably is very early, however, if your name is Linda and you get up early to fix lunch and don’t even get to go fishing!  But maybe she subscribes to the old proverb, “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day, teach a man to fish and you get rid of him for the whole weekend.”

To be on the water, with the sun just barely up and the mist still hanging over the low places is really good for my soul.  And to be there with my sons; well, it doesn’t get any better.  We caught fish, ate a good lunch of “fishing chicken” (chicken breasts complete with bone and skin, colored orange with seasoning salt and cooked on BBQ with indirect heat for 1-5 hours), made fun of each other, laughed and told stories.  It was really good in a deep sense.

I hope you get to do your own version of that once in a while.  When it comes to being healthy, that’s a part of you that you should not neglect!
