Today is Thanksgiving. Wow, time sure does pass quickly! On this day last year, I was sitting in my living room with my Dad and talking about the outdoors, fishing, and photography, while we drank coffee and laughed together. I planned on taking some photos of my Dad with my kids and my brother. I am glad I did. My father passed away on June 27th of cancer. He passed quickly and my family and I were able to see him before he left us – Thank you Lord. As I sit here, tears are rolling down my face as I wish I had more time with him. “Life moves pretty fast and if you don’t stop and look around once in while you could miss it” – Ferris Bueller. Certainly words to live by. I have much to be thankful for, but today, I am thankful I saw my Dad in his last few days. I am thankful he was a kind man that taught me much of the world, the goodness in a fathers heart, how to me a man, and how to love the outdoors. I love you Dad!
Remember – Hug the ones your with and call the ones you wish you were with. I think Ferris would have also said that given the chance!
