Finding time

Finding time in a day for all the things I want to do is becoming a challenge. It seems like the days are just flying by. I am trying to come on here more and write about what is going on in my life. Just incase someone out there stumbles across my spot on the web.

This weekend was supposed to be about relaxing and spending time with friends and family. And ya know...That is what it was. I even had a chance to meet some new folks. That is the best part about camping. You find new people at the camp grounds.Some local and some from far away.

In every camping trip, I learn something new. I get to see different things that are around me. Unfortunetly,this weekend I had the opportunity to watch an older gentleman fight for his life as first responders and medical staff tried to revive him. Learning,later that evening that he had finally passed on. The rest of the evening I just couldn't help but think about the old man laying there on the ground as the people pushed down on his chest,breathing in one more breath of hope.....As his family sat in the background drinking more alcohol. I should have just turned around on my walk when I came to him laying on the ground with people surounding him,because I just haven't been the same. Just haven't felt the same thinking that the family that he was there with sat there all that night....Drinking and most of the next day.

I know some people greive in different ways,but for me...Thinking of him being alone on that ride to the hospital,and alone in that hospital....Knowing that no one was waiting to hear the news in the waiting room. It has been with me since. Rest In Peace Mr. Mike......
