Go Ahead and Jump
A Mother's Day Special Edition:
At 14,000 feet, I was on the edge, door open, toes hanging over the edge, in position, gripping my loops, heart pounding, legs shaking, when the pilot said:
WAIT! We have gone too far and need to circle back!
It was my first time sky diving. Out of the eight experienced sky divers on the plane, I was the ONLY one who had a delay, the only first timer!
The two minute wait seemed like an hour. I had to hold.
Hold on to the promise I made to my adult children when I asked them:
“What do you want to do to make memories before you move?
Their immediate response; “Go skydiving!”
