It has been over twelve years since I worked at summer camp, and that long since I have been in a climbing harness. We were invited to a birthday party at a Rock Wall today, and when they offered the chance to the adults, I couldn't pass it up. I was surprised at the strength that I found in myself (I made it all the way to the top - on the easiest climb). Caleb said 'Mom, you're afraid of heights, aren't you?' 'Yes, C aleb' 'Why did you do it then?' Without thinking I answered, 'So my fear wouldn't have control of me.'
It was such a fun experience... I'm looking for excuses to go again!
