If there’s anything that life teaches us it’s that experiences are far more precious than things. The latest, coolest whatever always ends up worn out, out-dated, superseded or just plain forgotten. But a memorable event seems to somehow become more significant and more valuable with every passing year. That’s why I’m so honored when someone chooses a day of fishing with me as a gift for a loved one. This dad did just that for his son’s birthday yesterday. I think the picture above tells it all.
