They Are Only Young Once

Just so you know, I struggle with all the typical things in life everyone else struggles with.

Yesterday, a painful reminder that hard work, and success, come with a price.

  1. This was a very familiar picture for our family, with my youngest on a scooter — refusing to learn to ride a bike. It turned out her eyes don’t focus equally, so her sense of balance and coordination, as well as her reading were effected. We had no idea there was a problem. We assumed the reading was the issue. When she was 8, as soon as she went through eye therapy, she started reading like a trooper, and she learned to ride a bike over a weekend. Where before she wouldn’t even touch a bike.

    Hard work yes, but sometimes there is a hidden underlying reason, that stops progress and mounts frustration.

  2. Very interesting, and amazing, what a little focusing can do. Congratulations on your victory.
    You know, I didn’t even notice that Chapin was on the scooter. The photo just spoke to me in a unique way.
    There may or may not be a post about it. Hard to say.
