Five men, five horses, beautiful mountains, and a search for elk. I am home from 5 days with my brother, a good friend and 2 guides. Our bodies were tired and our souls refreshed. Rocky Mountain Outfitters’ Kevin Meland and Marc Erickson taught us how to navigate the land, find the elk and be men.
Our conversations often turned to our families. Each of us have a wife and children that we love and missed. I thought a lot about how I can be a better husband and dad. My perspective was quite different from the other men, but our challenges are the same. I gained refreshment and a renewal of purpose.
Tara held down the fort by herself while I was away. My brother’s wife came for the week to provide encouragement, help and friendship while I was away. Tara is feeling better each day and we are thankful to God for that. Her challenge is to have energy in the daily grind. But her spirits are up.
God has been faithful to us in refreshing our souls and putting people in our lives who encourage and challenge us.
