Today was sad because my sister left to return to her own home. We have had so much fun together it's pretty unbelievable. I admire her. Because she is a WARRIOR, with a little less worry than I seem to have.
For example: she never learned to swim when she was a kid and didn't feel confident in the water. But she took swim lessons and now she is a SCUBA diver with over 60 dives. Until her visit here, she always had her buddy (husband extraordinaire) at her side under the water. But she scheduled TWO dives while in Maui.
On her second trip, at the second dive area, they spotted a tiger shark attacking a huge turtle. Word spread and other boats came to the area to view the nature show. After watching the brutality, she didn't hesitate to dive again (a distance away, but still ....). Me? I'm freaked out to participate in ocean water aerobics as Maui has had more than the usual shark attacks, including two deaths. I'm definitely a chlorine girl.
My baby sister is a warrior. I am making some changes to be less of a worrier and more of a warrior. Confidence is a good thing.
