Sometimes, I cry too easily and at the wrong time.
Sometimes, I sing off key and dance in the car.
And sometimes, I'm scared of hearing a "no"...so I don't even ask.
Sometimes, taking a risk looks too permanent and the fall too far.
Sometimes, I worry too much what strangers will think, and I forget Whose opinion really matters.
This Summer has been filled with a lot of "sometimes": a lot of laughing, car dancing, and some crying. I'm learning to push through, to hear "no" and to take risks and fall.
I can't say I've learned...I will say I'm learning.
I can't say I've conquered...I can say I'm fighting.
I've heard a lot of toasts at weddings this summer, so I want to raise my glass to the lessons of summer, and to God, who has carried me through.
Here's to summer...hope yours has been a good one.
