~Favorite Quote #16~

Favorite quote #quotes #fishing #patience

This is a picture of my oldest daughter on our most recent camping trip.  She is never patient about anything but once we gave her a pole and taught her how to fish a new child was born.  She also caught her first fish on this trip.  The excitement in her eyes was one to never be forgotten.  And the peacefulness of her nature is one that I have captured in this very photo.

    1. I have a pic of her and my 5 year old that I had to choose from for the quote. My youngest didn’t really fish as much as she danced and played around in the grass. This one took the cake for this daughter reminds me so much of myself at this age. She is finding her “tomboy” roots 😉 Thanks for popping over and commenting Debbie.


  1. Stunning photo & words Trista. I love that the fishing gave your daughter patience & determination I bet. Lovely job on the graphic. I see the theme has changed again! lol You are a busy bee. Thanks so much for sharing with #candidcuddles x

  2. I love this! What I love most is that you’ve used your own picture because it means something to you. I loved it so much that I’ve added my quote to a personal picture too this week – thank you for the inspiration. Although your picture is a thing of beauty which, had I not read the post, would have thought was just a random graphic. Mine is just a picture of my kitchen wall 🙂 #candidcuddles

  3. Wow! I never looked at it this way! Fishing = hope. It’s so true. What a beautiful photo of your little girl, Trista. She’s sitting there perfectly content, legs tucked under her, waiting for a nibble on that line. She’s got some patience; it was just a matter of finding an activity that brought it out! Thank you, as always, for linking up with #candidcuddles! xx


  4. This is one of the most memorable pictures of a kid that I ever saw. Ah, ultimate patience! I have always been impatient…shoe laces were a “nunance” to me as a little girl. My grandma always was saying “patience, Patsy!” I never did any fishing, though…well, except once my dad took me fishing, but warned me that “fish don’t like talking.” Sigh.

    I love your blog … for some reason whenever I hear of a child doing something (anything) I think of the Domesticated Momster. Ha! You were the first person I thought of when I heard the words “Edward threw a watermelon down the basement stairs.” Edward is my youngest great-grandchild…he is two….not a “terrible” two, but a very inquisitive two.

    1. Thank you so much for the wonderful comment! Your little Edward sounds like a hoot! I really never understood terrible twos as mine were all treacherous threes! lol As far as the computer stuff…wordpress is updating so I think it’s making some things wacky today.
