I see you watching and learning and trying and growing.
And I see your absolute certainty that nothing will hurt
Because right here and right now, that’s what you’re
supposed to feel.
You’re supposed to be sure that I’ll catch you if you fall.
You’re supposed to know that worries are for me and testing limits is for you.
You’re supposed to leap into adventure, spread your wings, and conquer those
Now, don’t get me wrong, things aren’t always perfect.
You’ll have your fair share of skinned knees, head bumps and
timeouts. You’ll cry when you don’t get your way and you’ll yell when you think
it will help.
We’ll go around a few times while you’re testing those
But today you’re free to BE because I see you, baby.
There will come a day when you’ll need to know that snakes
could be hiding where you least expect them.
There will come a day when you’ll need to check to see how
deep you may go before you commit to the jump.
There will come a day when you’ll need to know that the
pretty surface could be hiding a muck that sucks you down and tries to keep you
But today – today is not that day. Today you only need to
know one thing.
