We started out today celebrating Christmas with the Mesarch family. Enjoyed a good breakfast, saw the sister & Fam and then headed out on the 5 hour drive to Ohio.

I was on a “jet” trip around MSP today (SUV trip). We ended up at a Dick’s Sporting Goods and Cabella’s shopping for fishing gear for a friend. Walking through and seeing all of the lures, rods and tackle boxes reminded me of my dad.

Then I found out later tonight that a good friend who helped me through my dad’s situation lost her mom tonight to a battle with cancer as well. 😦
