As I was making breakfast this morning for my kids and preparing to go to work, I heard my phone buzz and then see this text and picture from one of our long-time guides, Jen...
I laugh because it is the end of May and today we woke up to snow.
I laugh because my boss just bought flowers yesterday and said the words "it's not supposed to freeze."
I laugh because a couple of days ago I was sitting by the river and thinking that I should have worn sunscreen.
I laugh because spring is such a trickster season, making us think that summer is here
and then I laugh because I think that
no one in his or her right mind would be tempted to respond to that text.
|Me, sitting in the warmth of the sun just a few days ago.|
But I did not get the last laugh this morning as I pulled into work to see the handful of guides that responded to that text, excited to get out on the river.
That is love.
Love for the river, for work, for Montana living and the love of new adventures.
Like our guide Keith likes to say,
"Not everyday can be like the brochure."
And that's what makes it all so marvelous.
