Remember when you learned how to ride a bike?
I do. I think it is one of those forever memories engrained on your mind, due to the fear and trust factors.
I was thinking back to Fall ( and how green everything is in my pictures..with no snow..)
and I remembered that my now 5 year old, Sam, learned how to ride his bike.
He is very cautious and thankfully very trusting.
Isn’t it the hardest thing to say to your own child….
“It’s ok.. (
you have fallen off of your bike and cut your knees and elbows up, and they are bleeding and I feel like a schmuck telling you this..)
You have to get back on the bike and try again.”
And then, after many hours, and much effort, your child has succeeded in not only learning how to ride a bike…
they have also gained..
overcome this fear…
and know that perserverance prevailed!
Wow! What a lesson for every day life.
