Be gentle and not cruel. Embrace humility more than arrogance. Thank others more than you accept thanks. Feel compassion more than apathy. See what others ignore. Hold others close more than you push them aside. Learn more than you teach. Be present more than absent. Give more than you take. -Joanne Cacciatore

Crash and Burn

So Hailey is FEARLESS!!!!. As a parent you almost dont want to instill fear in your child because it is something we could all live without but this girl is out of control! She will jump in a pool with no fear, do flips, she doesnt care. If someone else can do it so can she. Well, this week took a turn for a little growth of personal fear. Hailey decided to follow her uncle TJ down a hill by our house. ITS A HUGE HILL. She was riding down her bike w/o her new helmet, puts her feet up on the middle bar, turns back to look where everyone else is and loses control. Well, it hurt...the neighbor and his friend up the street were outside and brought her home in his arms while his friend was carrying her bike all they said was she HIT hard. After loves, band-aids, kisses, ice, a little motrin, she was asked if she wanted a popsicle and she said NO I JUST WANT TO HOLD MY MOMMY!!! I have to admit I teared up a little...
