She knelt down so that she was eye level with her son.
She looked into his big sweet brown eyes and her heart was filled with so much love.
Many emotions swept through her body and tears sprung up so quickly that she had to hurry and smile and think about what she was about to say to him.
She reached out and gently grabbed his hands and pulled him closer to her.
He looked into her eyes and she saw him begin to worry. So she began.
Son, you have to do this. You have so much you have to do. You have to start at the beginning and not stop. No looking around. No turning back. Once you start, remember, you must finish.
When you get scared, and want to turn around, look straight ahead and see me there. I am on my knees praying. I am standing up and cheering. I am smiling and encouraging. I am yelling out at the very top of my voice COME ON, YOU CAN DO IT!
