I've seen 4 eagles and 400 barges. Still haven't seen 1 single kayak or canoe on the river.
300 miles down the River of Life. When I was going through cancer, I only tried to conquer one day at a time. Otherwise, I would have been overwhelmed. Watching my Dad go through treatment was so much harder on me. I felt helpless. I would have switched him places in a heartbeat but I couldn't. He wouldn't have let me even if that were an option. Need to remember - Conquer one day at a time.
Matthew 6: 34 “So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.

I could see a white curtain squeezing through the valley.
The wind overpowered my kayak so paddled to the bank for safety. I grabbed a tree and closed my eyes. Sometimes it helps when you don't make eye contact with the bully. It's was so intense that I couldn't see the Ohio side let alone five feet in front of me.
Just around the bend was my reward. My family greeted me at Huntington, West Virginia.
We stayed in a Holiday Inn, tucked inside Marshall University campus.
I took Haddie back to the hotel as the rest of the crew went on an adventure. Haddie found Nana's glasses;)
