Opening Day

Her potty dances don't help our chances,
And Dr. Seuss on the loose 
in our blind
is sure to keep away the moose 
(which are actually white tail deer, but my mind is now conditioned that rhyme is all I hear.)Still, while she swishes and squirms, I pray that a few lessons she learns:

Her daddy loves her,
Time in the blind together is the point,
Bagging a big deer is great,
But conquering the long walk to the blind in the dark,
Overcoming the fear and braving the cold,
Learning these lessons with her dad at six years.
The hope is they'll stay with her,
Memories to lean on when I'm not there,
A constant reminder that I care,
Giving here the strength to dream and dare.
