“Daddy, do people eat the eyes?”
“Well, I suppose there are people who do, but I don’t. You can try them if you want to.”
This was Hannah’s response as we were cooking up some trout we caught while camping. Hannah is six years old and we finished up Daddy-Daughter Camping Trip 4 this past summer. We went to Rifle Mountain Park again due to its close proximity to home, a small fishing stream, open fires, and remote feeling.
Each year we fish and catch our dinner. We hike, play in the dirt, pretend, imagine, dream, and eat. We relax, enjoy the fire, have s’mores, find bugs, and read stories. We simply have a blast bonding as a father and daughter.
So many fathers not only miss out on these types of opportunities, but others simply don’t even try. Fortunately, someone involved with the LIFE organization is continually put in remembrance of being a better parent, spouse, and person. And not only that, they have the opportunity to develop a residual, pipeline income which will free up future time that can be spent with family, friends, and pursuing the things that matter most in life.
I expect next year’s trip to be even better. Plus, I will take my son on his first father-son trip. I am thankful for being part of an organization that teaches values and principles of truth that will help me and many others have a positive impact on our families, friends, and communities.
