“Sometimes I arrive just when God’s ready to have someone click the shutter.”
There were so many reasons for which to be thankful on this trip. In fact on the last day when I was completely alone at Shoshone Point, after having witnessed a wonderful sunrise overlooking the Grand Canyon, I lingered a bit before hiking back to give thanks for being privileged to be there, for having the opportunity to experience all that I had and for the trip’s safe conclusion without mishap, injury or illness.
But first and foremost I am thankful for the good fortune to have met my wife over 37 years ago and her generosity to encourage me to go on this adventure. “The Gift of Time” has always been a phrase we have used in our family for years, but this was a gift beyond all others. It was truly a selfless act stemming from the kindness I saw in her the very first day we met. I will always be thankful for having met her, and to her for this extraordinary gift…it will be treasured forever.
