Spreading your wings

Watching as life flies by we never realize how quickly time really does go by.  This picture of my grandson racing go carts a couple years ago reminds me that my vantage point through the fence captures but a second in time and when I blink it is gone.  I remember when he was born the mixed emotions around what some might have said was a disadvantage that would hold him back.  Oh yea of little faith, you forgot to tell him as nothing has held him back as you can see.  We realize that the only thing that holds us back is our own minds that believe what we live.

This amazing young man is flying high on life as he finishes up what little is left of his schooling.  He will have to soon decide what he will be when he grows up.  Seeing him reach out and try so many things that interest him I see that his learning and curiosity is still high.  He loves the outdoors and while he can do anything he chooses, he makes sure he cultivates his learning as he goes.  His perception of his grandparents is one of wanting to preserve what generations have given to him.  He learns how to hunt, fish, cultivate nature so that there is something to be left for the next generation.

It has been a pleasure to see him as he becomes a young man.  Kudos to him as he has learned the gentleness of his grandfather and the wisdom to keep trying when others say it is impossible.
