The road to recovery can be long and slow sometimes. This photo reminded me of an incident of the path, the hope and the reassurance to continue…. We were exploring this waterfall, not too far from the lodge when from up the path a young girl, maybe 14 or 15, appeared. She was obviously upset so I greeted her and asked if she was OK. She let the tears flow, she was lost and couldn’t find her parents. I introduced ourselves and used my best fathers voice to calm her down and reassure her she was close to the lodge & we would escort her back down. Just a pause for a moment and relax and then reunited with her parents…. I have faith and a path, I have hope, now I have a reminder of the reassurance in my hope & faith.

Thank-you everyone for your thoughts and prayers and words of encouragement. The road to recovery is paved with hope and trust. I’m reminded of a trip 3 strangers took into the night. Me, a young mom and an older gentleman with a bad leg and one eye. It was 4 AM and the absolute quiet of the Northern Cascades surrounded us, as we began our trek through the forrest. Filled with hope and completely uncertain of what lie ahead we made our way. Finally, a small rocky beach and then, sunrise….
Officially spent more time in September at Urgent care or the Doctors offices than out shooting for the whole summer! Most who know me know I am or try to be a man of faith. There is no need to copy & paste, you don’t have to prove anything to me, I just ask that all who know me join me in praying for healing and recovery. I love the pastels of the Oregon Coast in the early summer mornings….
