A Leap of Faith

I watched the video clips of Felix Baumgartner's amazing skydive from space with my heart racing.  It was an awe-inspiring, yet insane, dream turned into a reality.  Several times, the clips show Baumgartner's mom as she watches her son freefall at 1.24 mach back to Earth.  I couldn't help but put myself in her shoes for just a moment.  And I found myself with contradictory emotions...
One part of me thought, "I hope none of my kids ever does anything that stupid."
Another part of me wished that they would.


I hope my kids have the audacity to believe in the impossible, for themselves and for others.  I hope they will have the courage to turn their dreams into reality.  I hope they are bold enough to inspire awe.

  1. I think that with your strength and courage and my stupidity, our kids can do anything.

Yeah! I love comments! Feel free to leave me one (or two or three).
But remember what your mama said..."If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all."
Thanks!
