Recently I was chatting with a friend about how closely linked fear and excitement are. She noted, wisely, that some of the most brave people simply recognize that feeling we get before big moments as excitement, while others recognize it as fear. You've given Caroline parents on the opposite ends of that spectrum - I'm more inclined to fear, and Dan to excitement. My prayer today is that you help Caroline lean toward recognizing those feelings as excitement - to keep her from being afraid. God please show me how to raise her to be courageous.
