You can find it in a young cub when he climbs a tree

You can find it in a mountaineer when she scales that impossible peak

You can see it in an earthworm, manoeuvering around an obstacle

You can see it in young kids when you tell them that you can move a building

For my part, I am glad that we can see it all!

Saw it in my 8 year old yesterday when he pushed himself to go beyond his comfort zone and climb higher than he has before in a tree. The beam on his face when he came down was amazing.

Congrats on completing the A-Z Challenge, from a fellow participant
