Gorge Boating & Much Gratitude
I have a family; I live in a beautiful place; the weather is great; and no loved ones are suffering.
Ken & Ann invited us for a boat cruise. After three tries, Ken found a boat ramp that had parking on this perfect holiday weekend. From Camas, past Crown Point to a little spot where we anchored, snacked, and Scout (the flying dog) could take care of business.
There was a time last spring when I grieved prematurely over the probable loss of joyful days on a river with Ken. (See, this post.). It only makes a day like yesterday so much sweeter.
When they called with the invitation, I was slogging away in my home office, feeling run down. Getting on the water, thinking of all the good things in my life, I returned home energized and grateful. (Some snapshots here.)
