Kids Are Awesome!

I love how we can learn such great "life" lessons and "God" lessons from our kiddos.

We were hiking today, at a place called Cathedral Hills. The boys picked the trail that said "most difficult". LOL. First because they liked the sound of a challenge. But they quickly figured out that the trails marked 'most difficult' had the steepest downhills, the funnest for running down! :-) We wound our way here and there for quite a while. Pretty soon the uphills were being accomplished more and more slowly. On one particularly steep hill as I labored behind my panting critters I heard Joshua say "This is going to be a good downhill!"

What a great attitude to have toward life! The hill you're climbing may be really steep and difficult. You may want to give up, throw in the towel, sit down and not get back up. But, keep on putting one foot in front of the other...cause when you get to the top you're going to have one heck of a fun run down!!! :-)

I'm going to have to remember that 'downhill' line.

Oh, I love that! It sounds like something my middle one would say. :)
