My word for 2011

Challenge...

And I continue to find ways to challenge myself.  When we talked about Parasailing, I talked more about the kids doing it, and then while watching I thought, why not?  But for some reason Zach wasn't up to it, so it turned out to be Chelsea, Ben and I.

We had to book it a couple nights before, and decided that a morning "flight" would be a good idea. We got up early and headed out to "Flamingo's donuts" a place where Chelsea found that they make your donuts to order, with all kinds of specialty ones.  Too cute and oh my, awesome donuts!

Facing my fears has been a huge challenge, with huge rewards and confidence building. After losing Ryan I have always lived in a world of doubt. That if something bad was going to happen, it would happen to me, or my family.  And for many years it seemed I was right, I mean who else has lost their son, father, brother and cousin so premature.  But over the past few years, and especially this year I decided I needed to live my life, challenge myself and take chances, even when fear was involved.... bring on the parasailing
