Your Moment Is Now

I'm not sure how you came across this post, maybe you subscribe, maybe you saw it on social media, maybe you found it in a Google search. (If you found it by googling shoot me an email I'm really curious how you found me. :) 

But regardless of how you wound up here-you are here. And I would like to take this moment to encourage you to take a moment to breathe.

I find that sometimes life gets so hectic and so rushed and so hurried that I literally forget to just stop and take a moment to breathe.

 Your moment is now.

Squirrel Hunting, November 28

Today was fun. Instead of joining the crowded shopping malls, I decided to go hunting with HG instead. HG and I went up near State College squirrel hunting. I was surprised at how much snow was still on the ground there. I was a little nervous because we were meeting a friend of HG, and I’ve never hunted with anyone other than HG. I was worried that I would ‘miss’ too many times.

As we were walking over the snow covered path, Shorty started barking at something on the ground. HG knew what it was immediately, but I didn’t know what it was until he told Shorty to leave the raccoon alone. It was my first time to see a raccoon before (other than the occasional dead one on the highway). He was curled up and I didn't recognize what it was.

After a little while walking, we saw a squirrel. I told HG to get it as it was on his side. As he walked around the tree the squirrel moved, and I was able to take a good shot at it. They told me to go ahead and I did. With one shot, I got him. Once again though, he let out a squeal (sigh) – I got him in the rear. Hopefully in time I will perfect my aim.

But overall it was a fun day today. I'm glad that HG asked me to go hunting with him today.
