Courage

Courage is

                Staying and not quitting

Courage is

                Waiting and not worrying

Courage is

                Watching and not hovering

Courage is

                working, regardless of energy

Courage is

                Going back to hard places

Courage is

                Going back despite the looks, ones from the corner of the eyes

Courage is

                Being on display when you would rather hide

Courage is

                Choosing to share your amazing child with others

Courage is

                Choosing to allow others to help

Courage is

                Choosing to allow others to come in your home regardless of dirt

Courage is

                Sitting in the back row, ready to take girlie out

Courage is

                Choosing hope when despair keeps knocking on the door

Courage is

                Choosing joy when it is hard to find

Courage is

                Changing a young adults diaper

Courage is

                Trusting and believing day after day after day

Courage is

                Choosing to continue to share

Courage is

                Choosing to continue to advocate

Courage is

                Choosing to continue to be teachable

Courage is

                Obedience regardless of outside voices

Courage is

                Continuing to fight for children and family

Courage is

                Ignoring the gossip

Courage is

                Listening to God’s voice

Courage is

                Confession and surrender

Courage is

                Accepting others regardless of words

Courage is

                Choosing to smile

Courage is

                Choosing to love
