Courage

Courage is being
brave.  Courage is
facing your fears.
Courage is being confident
in yourself.

I am posting it here in honor of her 10th birthday.  Motherhood is one of the hardest things I’ve ever done in my life and one of the most rewarding.  Every time I read this, I realized we’ve done something right with her.
