Default Look at whats really important

I returned today from a memorial for a friend who passed away suddenly on Dec 28, 2009 .He was only 50 years old with a wife and two daughters ages 14, and 10.He was a deer hunter an felllow ice fisherman like myself who spent endless hours with his daughters instilling in them the type of ethics and compassion that would make anyone proud to call him a friend.It Made me realize that some of the gripes I've had in the past were so trivial and petty. Tonight I'm going hold my wife and kids tightly and reflect on the memories that we have created and plan on making many,many more.Take time to spend quality time with your spouse, children , and friends as if it may be your last.Life is to short to worry about the things that in the long run do not matter .Don't be caught saying I should have.

Yup , to watch and listen to his young daughters get up and speak so highly of there dad really said a lot for the way that he raised them. Their mother asked me if I would take them out hunting and ice fishing and I said that I would be honored. I came home and talked with my kids and they were glad to help also.

I'm also sorry to hear about the loss of your friend. And I pray his family all find comfort soon.

Thanks , I 'm having a hard time with this one ,maybe its that our kids are basically the same age and that I'm close to his age . I think this may change the way I look at a lot of things.

huntr-, it's a question of getting ones prioities in order, and you have them just as they should be. Thanks for making that point as it is SO easy to get side-tracked with much less important matters.

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky
