A Bucket of Worms!

Both of my girls are unique in their own way. Taylor is more the girly girl type. She enjoys the beauty of dance and dressing up on occasion. Now Karlie is the more outdoors type. She enjoys the beauty of nature. She has always been excited about everything outdoors, from hunting to fishing. One of the fondest memories is when Karlie was probably about 6 or 7 years older. One afternoon after school I decided to stop and pick up a bucket of worms for her because she adores fishing. When I got home and told her she had a surprise in the car she was elated. Quickly she said "what?" When I told her what it was she ran outside and grabbed her fishing pole and headed to the pond. How simple it was to entertain her. We have gotten so far away from the simple things in life. Instead of spending 50 dollars at the movie lets watch a movie at home. Sit down at the dinner table and play a game of cards. Life has gotten to busy . God wants us to slow down and enjoy the simple pleasures of life and develop real relationships with family and friends. So I think this weekend its time to go fishing.
