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