An Empty Chairlift

An empty chairlift is an opportunity missed.

It was an opportunity for a son and father to spend a day together doing something the son desperately wanted to do for a long, long time.

It was an opportunity for a father to wake up on a holiday morning thinking how tired he is and how much he needs to get done, but instead offers to take his son skiing for the first time.

It was an opportunity to meet some very helpful ski instructors, fall down a few times, see some incredible scenery, laugh a lot and meet a scraggily dog with his own lift ticket.

It was an opportunity to give a day to someone very special in a father’s life.

Today, our chairlift was full.

Took my son skiing. It was time well spent.
