  Courage is something I will never truly understand, and often wish I had more of.  It's what you have when you are very afraid of doing something, but because it is necessary you do it any way.  When someone frightens you, and you don't run.  What it takes to stand up for someone in need, even if that will make you the laughingstock of the town.  And sometimes (ok, always!), it's what you have to have in order to say "I'm sorry" to someone else, and acknowledge your mistakes.
  A friend of mine gave me a little bag of tiny scrolls for my birthday.  Each scroll contained a helpful proverb, and I enjoyed reading one a day.  I thought today would be a good time to share this note of "Courage" with you.

        Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak;  it also is what it takes, on occasion, to sit down and listen.    

   I find it much easier to stand up and speak than I do to sit down and listen.  How about you?
                               Take courage, and have a great day!

  1. What a wonderful post. & so true, courage comes in so many forms... I like to think that I have some level of courage... it's nice to hear this though as a reminder that sometimes there's a *need* to stand up & speak!
