Dove is in turquoise.
The child in red is her best friend. Her friend is moving to another town next week.
Yes! After what amazed me to be almost 10 years I got up on skates!
I had so much fun! I used to skate a lot. Every time I could in my early married years. I would go while Mr U worked nights. I had a best friend who loved to skate too. Her and I would just tear up the rink. That was 20+ years back now. It came back to me.
It was so cool Mr U just handed me the money and said if it is your heart to skate than...go skate! He did not treat me like a cripple.
I am so glad I took the risk. It was very empowering and so nice to feel the breeze in my hair.
I was VERY careful with my knee. I even amazed the kids when they looked up to see me skating backward!
Dove was so proud of me. It was the most wonderful thing to see my daughter so proud of me that she was giving me lots of "thumbs up".
She drew a "belated" Mothers Day gift of a picture of us skating together. It meant so much to her.
This little girl was very attached to me. She was with another Mom who had given her a ride. The child would come up and just hold my hand. She was so sweet.
Her hair is green with a spray they put on it for fun.
