It's here!

Thanks to friends, Kim and Al, my salmon fishing experience happened and is on video.  Seeing this took me right back to the moment.  I'm so thankful to have had the opportunity to fish in Alaska and, now, to have the video is just icing on the cake!
My salmon never made it to the riverbank, but a few days earlier, Kim had caught one approximately the same size/weight as my one that got away.  So, what was on the other end of my line looked and most likely weighed very similar to hers in this photo...

Don't laugh at me, but about halfway through the video you may notice that I switch hands for reeling...I just may have dropped the pole if I hadn't given my hand some relief.  That would've even been more disappointing than the line snapping.  A gal's gotta do what a gal's gotta do...even if it looks funny while doing it. :)
I love Alaska...and miss the people and the land everyday that I am not there.

  2. Trust me, I would believe anything after the ending I had with this fish. :) Thanks for stopping by!

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…
