One of my favorite movie quotes ever, is from The Village,
where William Hurt's character says to Joaquin Phoenix's character,
"You are fearless in a way I shall never know."
I feel that way about my daughter much of the time.
I am afraid of everything in life.
I have ALWAYS been afraid, always been exceedingly cautious.
I didn't learn to ride a bike until I was 14 years old!!
Yes, you read that right, FOURTEEN.
Fear has always held me back, paralyzed me, made me a quitter.
I am so proud that she is not that way.
She learned to ride her bike without training wheels this month.
She is not afraid of falling.
She is just seven and she is fearless in a way I shall never know.
Post Script :: The day after these images were taken,
my husband surprised her with a new big girl bike. :)
