Letting Go

swings

My children were desperate to try the swings. These high-flying, terrifying swings at the indoor amusement park.

You wouldn’t catch me up there.

After several visits over the years, they are finally old enough. Holding my breath, I watched them being swung and spun out into the air above. I thought I might be sick just from watching.

But when I caught sight of their ecstatic faces each time they passed overhead, I decided it was worth it.
