Hear Comes 50!

In honor of my 50th Birthday...I am going to start trying to be less afraid. It occurred to me that I have spent many years being afraid of what may happen if I did so and so. So because of that I have spent a good many years being very careful. Last night at a friend's son wedding which as lovely as it was, my grandson preferred instead to walk up a straight incline and run straight down. He loved it and his beautiful mother and father cheered him on. I noticed he hesitated only when his Gigi sounded like she was afraid. It took me back to when his father was a child and I am sure that I held him back so many times too! Although, the many times I took him to the emergency room makes that seems doubtful. I don't want that for my grandchildren or for myself for that matter. So, I begin my journey of trying to be fearless. I am already afraid.

Great Observation mom. I hope I'm smart enough to learn new lessons when I'm 50. Love you.
