Someday I won’t be able to scale across muddy embankments, today is NOT that day!
For weeks my daughter has been begging us to take her to Cougar Creek to hike along the stream (and by hike I mean scale across muddy embankments on all fours and slide across slippery rocks on our bums). I was having a hard time finding any appeal to this adventure, but it was the quote that this blog was founded on that finally convinced me to go for it. I am blessed with an able body and I GET to chose whether or not to join her. The thought of someday not being able to do such things suddenly made this adventure extremely appealing. It got pretty sketchy, dirty and hilarious in the middle and then was dry, sunny and gorgeous by the trails end. In the words of Jojo Moyes, “You only get one life. It’s actually your duty to live it as fully as possible.” I’m grateful for my daughter who joined me in doing just that today!
Today was a muddy delight!
