The picture below of Bean was taken a few years ago, but it represents exactly how we all feel this week. Before she hit this pose, she had no idea what was about to happen. Her cheer coach simply and quietly asked, “is she afraid of heights?” As a Mom, I had a quick decision to make for my daughter … and the outcome would either be she would cry or she would fly. I had to decide what’s best. I said, “take her up!” The look on her face says it all. We don’t know what we don’t know.
Her eyes are both filled with fear and with accomplishment. She would have never taken this risk on her own. So whatever decision you are faced with today … You may be scared, you may not know the outcome … Look to those people you trust and that love and believe in you most and who are not afraid to speak on your behalf and say, “take her up!” Crystal Bullard, thank you for this moment!
