Sunday Sounds II: As we crossed the finish line of a week filled with fresh air, canoes, friends, a tent, mud, rain and hail, we also ended it with a race. While it may sound like a tumultuous mix or a recipe for disaster for some. For us its a typical recipe for a memorable spring break or just another day in the life with two energetic boys. There are very few things these days that society provides the lure for teens and pre-teens to get up and step into life. It is our job to be their guide in showing them that in life and it it’s simplicity that we ultimately seek. Our job to convince them hapiness has been masked by the hustle and bustle in society to keep up, one up, go farther, go bigger. I’m blessed as a father of two to be part of a family with young kids who are compelled to rise and get up and enjoy the day. Who were able this week to find fun in the simple things, from swinging on a vine, stomping in a puddle or even to pet a baby sheep, that is what life’s about. While sometimes its the gentle nudge, some clever thought for inspiration, or the love from a mother who stands at the head of very short list of worlds best Mom’s, that inspires them.  I’m also blessed as a husband, to have a wife who steps up and fill s in the gap that either work or health limitations have created for me as a father. There are times when we want to slow time down, when you see your son tow a ragged canoe off the shore, wondering just how many more or how very few of those days are really left. And sometimes, it takes a picture or a day or two later to find that clarity and to realize that moment you were given.

There are however many times in this family we speed life up and race for its finish, like today’s pre dawn 5K. For two boys and a Mom who have braved the cold, the mud, have slept in a tent in the rain and hail, have walked every inch of shore line or peddled miles of congruent trails, they found the will. For two boys over who came a weeks worth of nightly belly’s full of smore’s , they found the energy. The youngest defies having been in the hospital 2 times in the last 3 weeks to overcome a disease life so cruelly has dealt him, he finds the daily courage.  With all those things that in life most would let define them, they transcend time, adversity and they crossed it with a smile.

Crossing the last day of spring break its time to turn around and wave good bye and acknowledge thanks. And just what does this have to do with collecting antique lures you ask? Well in truth it has nothing, and everything all at the same time.

Dr John is this weeks Sundays Sounds .

Lyrics:
Woke up this morning wanting to cry
Then I remember, yes, I know why
She’s a real good one for having her cake
I’m gonna go fishing or jump in the lake
Yeah, I’m gonna go fishing, that’s what I’ll do
Think about nothing, not even you
Catch a real big one, a big speckled trout
Snapping in the water, I’ll pull him on out
Sweet talking liar, spin me a yarn
Tell me a story, big as a barn
Don’t stop listening, I won’t hear you out
I’m gonna go fishing and catch me a trout
If a gal is a liar, a gal is a fool
Playing for keepers and breaking the rules
She’ll be the loser, yet to find out
I’m gonna go fishing and catch me a trout
Here in the water, look at him shine
There goes a big one, that one is mine
Catch up the reel now, I’ve got the feel now
Hooked onto my fly rod, I’ve got me a trout
Sweet talking liar, you’re in for a fall
You tell me a story, you cut to the wall
Don’t go my way, I’m down the highway
I’m gonna go fishing
Yes, I’m gonna go fishing
Yes, I’m gonna go fishing and get me some trout
