Happy Thursday ~ 365
I only have one image for you today but it is one of my best from the last couple of outings at the Basin. If you have followed this blog for very long you know of my love and interest in eagles. I could watch and photograph them every day and not get tired of it.
Yesterday I had a great experience. Over the years I have worked with many company representatives, some of whom did a good job and others, well not so good. One of my favorite representative, Bryan got promoted up the corporate ladder and I haven’t seen him in over a year. He is one of those guys that you can tell has a vision of life and a passion for doing things the right way and I always felt he helped inspire me to do better work.
Last week he called and wanted to know if I could have lunch with him. So yesterday we had lunch and spent about 70 minutes just catching up on what each of us has been doing. I am so happy for him and his new role in his company. You can just tell by listening to him and watching the way he works that this is not a job for him it is his way of living. He is a marathoner, well-rounded athlete, and a great family man. It was pure pleasure to visit with him again.
Later in the afternoon I went to DeWitt to visit another friend of mine, Mick. Mick was in a terrible accident a few months ago, which left him paralyzed from his waist down. He is back in the hospital since January and has to have more surgery and other procedures done and will spend another month or two in the hospital. Through it all he has had an optimistic outlook and has retained his sense of humor. As I talked with him and listened to what he has already endured and what he as yet to endure it reminded me of a saying that goes… Write down your biggest problem or obstacle and pin it to a wall. Ask 20 people to do the same and the odds are you’ll take your problems back over the others on the wall.
So a really great day. I got to share a small part of the lives of two great people and I am much better off today as a result of it.
Thank you for checking out the blog today. I hope you have a great day. Be careful
