I watched something incredible on Saturday. I watched my 6 year old niece, who is painfully shy and a bit of a perfectionist, skate a solo in an ice skating program. She was scared to death, skated out to the ice, and promptly forgot her routine. She looked like she was about to loose it, looked at me… put a huge smile on her face… and began to skate. She may not have skated the planned routine… but she took her bow to a very supportive crowd and skated off very proud of herself. I asked what happened… she said she saw me and remembered that I told her she could do anything… she just had to try. Sometimes I need a child to remind me that it doesn’t have to be difficult. Love this kid!!!!!! This is my girl, alone on the ice… as she started to do her thing!!!
