Today we all went skating at Rosa Park Circle in downtown G.R. Now I haven't been on skates since Steve and I dated, and before that I was a little girl on the farm. Bekah was very excited about going, and Jeremiah said O.K. Now anyone that knows our family and some of the stuggles we have gone through with our eldest in the way of perfectionism and impulse control may understand when I say I was a little nervous! In the past we would try to have a fun family time and it would end up being very stressful because Jeremiah could not master it right out of the shoot, and become angry and then Steve and I would be all stressed. This usually leaving Bekah losing out on any kind of fun! Now please I hope no one thinks I'm cutting down my boy, I sure am not! We've learned alot of lessons about God's grace through the years!
Anyway it started out really not looking to good for him or for me. I felt like I was never going to find my skating legs. Well I have to tell you, that boy kept at it, he smiled more then he frowned! When we thought about leaving instead of putting money in the meter, he said he didn't want to go yet, he was just getting the hang of it! He never gave up! We were more then proud, we were praising God, and having a great family time! It was such a blessing from God!
And I found my skating legs too!
