Seems you’ve taken to “standing alone” this past week. I figure you will be walking by Sunday, according to you pace. I don’t worry about you standing alone because I know your momma and daddy are right there to catch you if something should happen, since you are still trying to get the hang of this.
There may be other times in your life Alice when you have to “stand alone”, knowing there is no one there to catch you if you fall.
Here is what I want you to remember, if such a time should come.
It’s alright to fall from standing alone if you are standing alone for the right reasons.
What are the right reasons to stand alone at the risk of falling?
Well, hopefully all of us who are charged with mentoring you in this life in some way are able to point to some of those reasons as you grow older.
