When we were visiting my adventurous son in Hawaii last January he was suppose to meet us at a certain beach that issues only so many parking passes. So we kept waiting and waiting for him to arrive when all the sudden I spot him on a paddle board. He ended up having to go to the next beach and he always has his "fun gear" with him. So he just paddled on over with a backpack full of food and phone etc.
He asked me if I would like to try the paddle board. I really did want to, but I let fear get the best of me, and made all the excuses…"you don't have a leash, what if I loose it?" yada yada yada. Finally I did try and had better luck on my knees. I was still afraid to go to far. Jeramiah put me up front on my knees and he paddled me around the bay.
I really don't know to many young men who would do that for their mothers so it meant the world to me and I had so much fun. Better to try and fail then to miss a chance at something new and exciting.
