24x24: July 14, 2012

24 hours in Chattanooga on the lake

There's a lot to be said

for going out there and hitting it hard,

 giving the lake your all.

 A lot to be said

for being pulled back to the boat with a proud grin on your face.

 There's a lot to be said

 for taking a flying leap into the lake

 without knowing what waits for you beneath.

 There's a lot to be said for friends who've known you since you were born,

 for babies whose perfect little heads cause people to swoon,

for thrilling rides on Jet-Skis,

and for friends' dads who are happy to let you take the wheel.

There's a lot to be said for quiet moments on the porch,

 and the beaming faces of children who caught a fish right off the dock.

There's a lot to be said for the love a friend can have for another friend's child,

a child who can hardly take a bad picture,

 who melts hearts with her smile,

 whose hair is apparently going to fight humidity

 with wispy curls,

 just like her mama's.

 There's a lot to be said about 24 hours on the lake.

How much fun was had,

 how many memories were made.

How blessed we are.
