With today being Thanksgiving I thought I would talk about things I am thankful for. I have an incredible wife that I married after only knowing her for two months because I felt God leading me too. I am blessed to have a wife that at times doesn’t understand my fishing and the things I am doing but stands beside me and supports me. Plus she reads and edits most of my writings so you don’t read all the typos that spell check misses. I could not write this blog or my magazine articles without her, so next time you see her tell her thank you.
If a year ago you would have told me I would be doing the things I am today I would have told you that you were crazy. In about four months I have gone from no sponsors to seven. BB-Lures, JJ’s Magic, GLCC, Centermark Coaching, Atomic Tackle Company, Bass Fury, Fish Bait Radio. I have articles being published in magazines. I have been contacted from companies like Lazer Trokar to do product reviews. I have been able to interview Shaw Grigsby. I am so thankful for the opportunities God has given me and allowed me to do.
One of the things I am grateful for is my boat. As I write this I realize my wife is going to chuckle when she reads this. I am always looking at new bass boats and dreaming of a new one. However I am thankful for my 1979 Ranger. I am thankful because I can go and fish, I can fish bass tournaments. At least I have a bass boat. I am lucky.
Most of all I am thankful for my relationship with the Lord. I have lived my life without him, and I know that I never want to go back to that life. I am blessed to have a savior that loves me and sent his son to die for my sins. The best part is that everyone can have that relationship with the Lord. This Thanksgiving I hope we all stop and think about the things we are thankful for. Have a great Thanksgiving.
