Make a splash!

"C'mon mom just jump in" Mckenna calls to me as I stand at the edge of the pier, gazing into what lies beneath.
We're at Martha Lake today and I think how this is a perfect analogy of how we approach life when we are young and carefree in contrast to the approach we take when grown-up-ness settles in and we become more familiar with what lies beneath.
Mckenna is rushing up the ladder behind me.
"Mom, it's cold, but it's exhilarating."
She's so convincing-it's the smile or the giggle that a friend once said we share.
As the water swirls around my skin and lifts me to the surface, I feel a layer of grown-up-ness sinking.
