Thanks for listening. :)
I took this today, it's a crepe myrtle tree I have growing in my back yard. It took forever to bloom this year. It was Vinny's tree, guess she's grieving too.
I believe that everyone should try to do something a couple times a week, OK maybe once a week that your scared to death of. Take a risk, you'll be very surprised.
I have had a horrible fear of water ever since I was young. I am scared to death of drowning, petrified of deep water, anything over 4 feet is a no go.
This past weekend the boys and I went to stay at KK's place and as always the boys will drag me out to the pool where I always park it in a lounge chair, plug in my music and take in the sun while watching them have fun..lots of fun, in the deep end.
Their Dad taught them how to swim when they were little.
He tried to teach me about 100 times but I never could let go of the death grip I kept on his neck.
I don't know how he did it, my Kolin actually talked me into and had me ease my way on the wall, deeper and deeper into the deep end.
Then he had me hold on to the ladder while he showed me, how to float, to swim, how to tread, how to let go....
To let go, remember that cuz after about 45 of minutes of him showing and talking to me, I let go.
I swam, floated, tread water and by Sunday I was jumping into that 9 foot section like it was nothing.
I had fun with my kids and they did too.
I've always been afraid I'd go down to the bottom of the deep water end and not be able to get back up, turns out that I barely ever made it to the bottom cuz I was constantly floating back up.
So, what I feared the most really wasn't so scary at all.
And to be honest, I seriously thought I felt a hand, maybe an arm underneath me keeping me afloat.
Yes, I know...crazy but could he have been there too?
Take care everyone!! :)
