Fear and Peace

Top ten scariest things I have ever done in my life (in no particular order):

  1. Sang “Silver Bells” in front of the whole school in the 5th grade.
  2. Watched a purple rash of unknown origin cover every inch of my daughter’s two-year old skin, while living in the middle of the Mexican desert during the summer in a 30-foot trailer.
  3. Flew in the Sky Coaster over the Royal Gorge.
  4. Answered the phone when the caller ID said “Unknown Name, Unknown Number.”
  5. Attended eighth grade.
  6. Stayed broken up with Chris for about an hour when I was seventeen.
  7. Walked into a bar for the first time in my life when I was 29 to sing karaoke for my friend’s birthday.
  8. Drove home from church during the worst flooding I’ve ever been in, passing stalled SUV’s in our minivan and watching port-a-potties racing past us in the rising waters.
  9. Sent my baby to kindergarten.
  10. Started my own blog.
