30 DoT: {day 2} an animal

This may sound crazy, but the first animal that came to mind that I am most thankful for this year is a moose. Not just any moose, but the first one that my NBC family saw while in Alaska.

Each time one is sighted it is just as exciting for me.
Since 2008, I have had the joy of leading other teams on their moose hunts.
God has granted favor and always provided at least one, and usually more, moose for my teams to see and squeal with delight over.
This summer, I caught our second moose sighting on video.  It still makes me laugh out loud.  Enjoy!

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…
