conquering her fears

In the past, Sarah went flying off the end of the slide one too many times, landing in a heap.  She got tired of it and decided not to go down slides again, it was way too scary.  It’s been months and months of playground play without sliding….until this weekend.

I’m so proud of her.  She finally got brave enough to go.  Once she did it, she wouldn’t stop; up and down, over and over, saying “weeeeeeeeeee”.  It made me smile every time.  Watching her was also a nice little reminder to not let fear stop me from living a full and happy life.

  1. Her hair is so cute. How fun to see her overcome and enjoy so much. Our Nick didn’t want to ride a bike for awhile so he would just run…he became VERY fast. So good to encourage them, but let them take it as they are ready.

  2. This is perfect timing! Sarah is adorable and brave now and the photos are adorable and all that….but it’s the courage and the fear quotes that got the tears rolling in the rims of my eyes. Jesus just used you to touch a nerve and remind me that I’ve still been way too fearful. Thank you!
