the edge of passing the torch



This past Saturday my daughter and I ran a 5K race called “Scary in the Prairie.”

My daughter finished in third place in her age group, a very competitive age group.  She won a bronze medal.

I finished in first place in my age group and won a gold medal.

There were fewer runners in my age group than hers.

For the first time, she ran a faster time than I did and beat me to the finish line.

Her ability to run faster is increasing.

My ability to run faster is decreasing.

The runner torch in my family was passed from father to daughter.

My daughter is now the fastest runner in my family.

I am very proud of her.

What is your edge of passing the torch?

Are your doing it within your family?  Are you doing it with friends?

How does it make you feel?

Are you accepting it? Or are you resisting it?

At some point in time, it is inevitable.

Out There on the Edge of Everything…
