Catch of the Day.... 

 I'm still trying to figure who is the catch of the day, my husband, West or the fish.

For me, it's a trifecta!  Michael and West walked to the end of the street and threw some lines out last week and what do you know, Westie got his very first fish.  I'm not sure if he was as excited as Michael, but I had tears in my eyes.

With all the craziness that goes on in all of our lives, especially these tough times that we live in, it's the moments like these that make me just stop....  Does all that crap really matter?  

The days when I feel like my head is gonna explode because the house is dirty or my to-do list is as long as my arm or the bills are piling up.  That's when I need to stop and think about what's really important in life.  This is one of those moments...

There are a lot of people out there who loosing their jobs, their 401k's and their houses.  When I look at this picture of my dudes, I realize that I really don't have it that bad.  The problems are here today and probably won't be gone tomorrow or anytime soon. 

So, I guess the message is that we all need to stop, slow down and appreciate ever little sweet moment like this one.
