Wednesday's Walk - Something Fishy

As long as I can remember, I've loved to fish.  No matter the water source...pond, lake, river, ocean...each has their own joys when it comes to fishing.  I am not choosy when it comes to fishing, just put a pole in my hand and lead me to water.  I will enjoy my time there trying to catch the big one.
Grew up primarily fishing in Grandpa Miller's pond, but we would occasionally visit a neighborhood fishing spot or go to the river.  Have to have a license to fish on the river...still remember that fishing trip when Mom was just holding one of the poles (out of the water mind you) for one of us girls for a moment and that was the moment the Game Warden happened to show up.  He apparently never went fishing with kids and didn't know they need help from Mom sometimes...that doesn't mean she was fishing without a license.
I'm not for sure where we had gone fishing in my first picture.  This picture makes me smile to think of where it all started...and how far I've come.   By the way, the photo is of my sister and me...I'm the one on the left.

My favorite fishing trip in recent years is deep sea fishing off of Tybee Island on the GA coast for my birthday (May 2009).  Caught 3 sharks that day and lots of other fish, too.  So fun!
My next goal...salmon fishing in Alaska.  Hopefully, I'll catch one...never been salmon fishing before. 


  1. I like to fish too, but I can't handle worms..It's icky :-)

  2. Haven't been fishin in ages:( Would love for my lil Goose to experience it. Sadly, I can't handle the WORMS, OR the Guttin. Funny thing, I didn't learn how to fish UNTIL I moved out of FL and I haven't fished since I moved back...Go Figure:)
    Happy Wednesday

it's not about me

I reminded myself of this recently.
It's not about me at all, this wellness journey I am on to a healhier version of myself.
Not at all.
Never has been, really.

It is about the people who invest in me.
My husband. My boys. My family. My friends.
They all share themselves with me.
When I am not at my best, I'm not giving them a good return for their investment.
They get the tired looks, the lack of energy excuses, and the wimpy "maybe next time" cop outs.
I have come to realize that those that take precious time to invest in me deserve better from me. I need to adhere to the direction given on any flight I've ever been on that goes something like this: make sure your own oxygen mask is properly secured before helping others. If I don't take care of myself first, my ability to care for others effectively diminishes quickly.
My choosing clean eating, drinking enough water, and exercising on a daily basis is how I put on my mask first. Am I perfect at meeting the n…
