Five Minute Friday: Hero

It’s Friday and time for Lisa-Jo Baker’s Five Minute Friday prompt. I’m happy to be part of this wonderful group of writers who writes every Friday only 5 minutes about one given prompt without editing. The rule is that after publishing you just go and read what others have posted before you and encourage them.

And here it GOes…

HERO

I see this little shy girl. She was too shy to talk to anybody but family members. She was determined and she knew what she wanted, but she didn’t make a number of herself. Her preschool teacher told me she didn’t want to push her to step out if she wasn’t ready. The teacher wasn’t sure how far to encourage her without pushing her.

I thought she would be the one who wouldn’t fly too far out from the nest. That she would be the one to stay close and choose a safe way. That she would never really take risks but go in the middle. She wouldn’t rock the boat, but still live a wonderful and full life.

But she is the forerunner. Yes, she is the firstborn, but that’s not the reason. What she has gone through at her young age, has brought out strength and perseverance. She has a courage to chase her dreams.  She was the one who spent five weeks alone overseas in a  family she didn’t know and who didn’t speak her native language, when she was only 15.  After that she has travelled, stepped out, tried new things again and again. She is still young, only 20, but it seems the world is her home and she is not afraid to face new challenges and new nations, languages and circumstances. I’m very proud of her and I can see where ever she is going to settle down one day, she is going to do it by choice, not by fear.

    • Thank you for stopping by and for very nice comment! I wasn’t trained to be mama. I walked through those early years with lots of prayer and trusting God and with doing lots of mistakes along with good ones. These kind of fruits make it all worthy.

  1. How wonderful and encouraging!

    My oldest girl started out ‘shy’. She would cling to me and be cautious about much. I have been praying since she was little that she would resist fear, try new things, and risk getting to know the desires God has placed in her heart. She is only 10 and I am excited to see what God is going to do in her life.

    • Thank you for stopping by. 🙂 She will. Just let her try her wings when she is ready and trust her and trust God. She is lucky and blessed to have mommy who keeps her in prayers.
