If You Fall Down, Get Back Up




Gage taught Brook how to ride a bike today. He decided that he would take her training wheels off and teach her to ride...and guess what?...he did just that!! She was so proud of herself, she may have fallen a time or two, but she got back up, and rode! Kind of ironic I was just thinking about how my kids have just taken off, they are getting the things they need by themselves, they are fully independent. So in a sense their training wheels have been removed, they aren't so dependent on mom & dad anymore. They are riding by themselves, not needing to lean on us anymore. Sure we're still here to pick them up, but they're brushing themselves off, and climbing back on, that's the important thing....
on second thought, can we stop the aging process?
