Courage

Courage.  Mental or moral strength to venture, persevere, and withstand danger, fear, or difficulty.  Such a big meaning for a small word.  We all have some courage.  It is usually put to the test when we face challenges.  Then we really see the "stuff" we're made of.  Can we handle it?  Will we come through it?  What will we learn because of it?  I am drawn to the sentiment on this card.



We often become more mature and adult when we have to use our courage.  This is pink month.  Breast Cancer Awareness.  We have courage when we take care of our loved ones who are sick.  We have courage when we watch our loved ones feel pain.  We have courage when we let them go.  That's really when we have to grow up and become who we really are.



  Be who you're meant to be.  Don't be a cowardly lion.  Have courage!!!
