Climbing Rocks – 8
You can hardly see my beautiful girl on top of the rocks, but there she is my eldest daughter, Jessica. She used to be the one who would climb the jungle gym and cry for help. She was just like a kitten, going up was alright and even fun, but getting back down was another story. Jessica is a living paradox. There are some things that she doesn’t trust herself with and is afraid to do (things that are no big deal for most people), but in other things she’s fearless. I truly admire her courage.
One year we bought her a poster with an eye-catching photograph of an extreme female rock climber. It’s still on her wall and it says, “Whatever women do they must do twice as well as men to be thought half as good… Luckily, this is not difficult.” By Charlotte Witton
My next post will be the start of a brand new series.
