Mindful Monday - dad

Welcome to the second Mindful Monday challenge.  What is Mindful Monday?  well... it is explained here, but in a nutshell, documenting simple things that just make us happy.  I think it is important to take the time to be mindful and just appreciate what we have, and the simple and amazing things that surround us in our daily lives.  

This week's prompt

What does that mean to you?  your dad, what is a special memory you have of your dad?  what is a special treasure you have that reminds you of your dad?

I am lucky to still have both parents.  My dad is 78 this year and has had a rough couple of years but just purchased a new camper so he is still going strong!

I have used the Cabin Fever by Simple Stories for my pages.
I love the beauty of nature and I think my dad instilled that in me.  We did a lot of road trips (heading out camping usually) - including travelling the whole of Canada from one coast to another and I always remember (when I was awake.... I slept a lot in the vehicle... still do, LOL) my dad pointing out beautiful things - mountains, lakes, trees... etc.

We always had to camp where there was a lake because camping = fishing.  I did a lot of fishing with my dad.  Lots of great memories!

Would love to see your take on this week's prompt

Awesome post! I wonder how many people associate their dads with camping. I sure do! He took my girlfriend and me hiking in the Sierra mountains with his Boy Scout troop. And there was fishing involved. When I think of my dad, I think of him in his glory in the middle of nature. What a happy thought. Thank you!
