Madeline Loves to Hunt

I have fond memories growing up and spending time outdoors with my father.

Every weekend, we would either go hunting, fishing or camping. I intend to express the same level of energy, time and love with my daughter.

I remember walking for pheasants on a warm fall day as geese speckled the sky and the wind pushed across the country-side as to say, “It’s time to go.”

I’d lay in the tall grass and eat from the paper bag the hunter’s lunch my father prepared. Can you guess what was in the bag? Always, was there, a Snickers® or Butterfinger®, along with an apple and some kind of sandwich.

I now have the same responsibility and excuse to go outside with my daughter and to teach her the respect and admiration for what God has given us.

I never wished for my father to spend
more time on the couch.

It’s easy to get caught up in everyday things and I realize I must plan ahead. For when I look back, it was those times with my father, away from the hustle and bustle of the city, did I realize there’s is more to life than work, shopping and television.

I love the outdoors and I love my daughter. It’s time to explore and go create more memorable moments that she will soon share with her own children.
