My Illustration Friday drawing for this week's word: Brave. I can remember the first time I jumped off the high dive like it was yesterday. I have no idea how old I was. Maybe eight? I stood up there for awhile. Too scared to jump, too proud to climb back down that ladder. When I finally jumped and came to the surface, I remember swimming toward my mom who was waiting for me by the side of the pool. I was laughing. I did it! When I climbed out, she hugged me and I burst out crying. It wasn't because it hurt when I hit the water, or because it scared the crap out of me. It was just so emotional!
