Nothing to Fear

Anything I've ever done that ultimately was worthwhile... initially scared me to death. 
Betty Bender

This new hat I am wearing as of late ... caretaker of two octogenarians ... has been much more of a challenge than I ever could have anticipated. Illness stepped in and pushed me full-on into a roll I thought I'd have time to ease into.  No such luck!  There has been more than once that I began to feel a teensy bit of fear over what else lies ahead.  Thankfully prayers have been answered and those moments are few and fleeting. 

There's a popular saying right now ... "It is what it is."  I have pretty much made that little nugget my mantra.  I am in this role, because that is where God has put me at this time.  I am doing my best to ignore the fears and just embrace the fact that I am blessed beyond measure to be in this place in life.  Even if I have days where I feel like this little guy (can't you just feel his uncertainty?)  I know I can do this!

I remember this time (haircut). One had this face, the other was crying.
