But what about the near life experiences? How often and how close to that are we everyday? How often are we too afraid or too careful or too intimidated that we won't allow ourselves to live life to its absolute fullest?
And as a Mother, I have this huge responsibility to direct not only how I live, but just which way each of my children will live- or not "live."
To keep them safe and far away from the edge, from the unknown, and thus maybe missing miracles and blessings and life-shaping experiences. Or instead taking that very thing that is holding us back, that thing we just can't seem to "get over" and using it as a launch pad, a push from the nest into that place that really may not be so dark and scary after all. It might just be life. A life very much worth living.
