Recently over on Facebook I have been sharing some stories about Simon and track and me and running and well….these are some photos taken on my phone the other night when Simon was giving me some long jump lessons.
My children never cease to amaze me. They seem so fearless. They are so eager to try new things, meet new people, put their heart and soul into what they love, and believe that the world is good.
How much do I love that?
A lot. I love it a lot. And I don’t want that to change…I watch Simon at his practices the energy the determination the hope…how do I foster that and keep it going? I don’t really expect an answer…it’s more of me just thinking out load while I type…and wondering….
I always want my kids to be as optimistic and hopeful as they are now…and sometimes I wish for some of that youthful fearless back…where I am willing to just jump and let all the details work themselves out…
Mainly I want them to never be afraid to try. How do I give them that confidence to last a lifetime that seems to come so naturally right now? I wish I knew…But I don’t. So I’ll continue to think and worry and pray and have Simon help me with my long jump technique.
