I love Marie's challenges, and I am embracing this one with a sense of awe and fun. Here's my photo:
|Jumping to the Challenge|
This girl is my four-year-old daughter Ari, and she is my universe. The picture was taken this weekend at a place called Xtreme Trampolines. The joy on her face and the sparkle in her eyes tell the whole story.
Here's a girl who had just been jumping for 45 minutes on a trampoline. Jumping with zest, abandon, and with a sense of childish glee.
I asked her to stop so I could snap this picture. Then she got back to her business of being a child, sporting a bandaid on her leg, not because she had a boo-boo but because it was a fashion statement.
Watching her jumping, I was amazed and grateful to have her in my life and for the lesson she was teaching me right this very minute: to jump into life joyfully and confidently.
And I learned that a snapshot of an ordinary day is actually quite extraordinary.
