To the edge



We walk to the edge in different ways. Sometimes we charge right in and take on the challenges. Other times we choose getting there slowly dipping ourselves in one toe at a time. Eventually we learn that facing the challenge is the most important part of growing courage. Cultivating courage in our children is a remarkable gift we can offer. It is the courage in little endeavors that will grow leading them through the big moments. Seeing my girl inch her way up to the water overcoming her fear of big waves reminds me of my own moments where I needed to find the courage to press on. Together we faced those waves and found joy in riding them out.
