I jumped out of a perfectly good airplane! I can’t remember a time when I didn’t want to go skydiving, so, I finally took the parachute by the straps and made it happen.
In the days leading up to my jump, everyone asked, “Are you nervous?”
My answer was always a resounding, “No!”
That is until, the night before. And it wasn’t that I was nervous for myself, but my twenty-two year old son decided at the last minute to go with me.
At first, I was excited about sharing the experience with him, but then it hit me; what kind of mother am I? He and I nearly died when he was born. In fact, they had to do an emergency C-section in order to save both of our lives. And then, somehow, I miraculously managed to get him safely to adulthood without any major injuries.
