Very recently, we jumped off of a cliff (um, metaphorically, do you KNOW me?!?).
Our little family has gone through anticipation, excitement, disappointment, concern, consideration, more anticipation, nerves, more excitement, fear, comfort, peace ... all before the jump.
It brought with it all things that I imagine a sky dive would bring: fear, exhilaration, adrenaline ... that frantic clutch for your parachute cord.
But in the end, we are floating toward earth, carrying a healthy amount of fear, enjoying the peace of the float, and tremendously excited about the possibilities this will bring.
