What do we do when we fall down?

Thursday, April 16, 2015

I was reminded today of an incident that happened when visiting my son and family. My grandson was about 18 months...running and working on his command of the English language. He fell down and my son said, "What do you do when you fall down?" To which my grandson said, "Get back up!" I looked at my son and said, "Batman!" He shook his head.

In the movie the son falls down the well and his father asks, "Why do we fall down? So we can learn to get back up."

This journey we are all on requires falling and getting back up. I don't know about you, but my proverbial knees and hands have gotten pretty bloody over time. But even more important is that I should learn something each time I fall and get back up. Otherwise, what's the point.

So one of the things I've learned is that it's not always easy to get up by yourself and you need others to help you. Thanks SparkFriends and Determined Daisies emoticon for your help in this challenge when I struggle to get up. emoticon

    Beautiful blog!

    We all fall; the important thing is TO GET BACK UP!

    (We would never have learned to walk the first time if we just stayed down when we fell!)

    I appreciate the kind words and helping hands, too!
