I’m not naturally brave. But many times I find my braveness and bigness through those around me.
To the mom who leaves an abusive relationship in the dark of the night with a suitcase in hand and three small children in tow not knowing where you will go or how you will provide for your babies — you make me want to be brave.
To the tattered old man who has no family to call his own and no pillow to lay his head on as he curls up under the bridge on a cold winter’s night — you make me want to be brave.
To the soldier who gets 24 hours notice that you will deploy to combat areas unknown requiring you to leave your family and routined life as is until further notice — you make me want to be brave.
To the teenage girl who stands up tall for her Christian beliefs, serving others, and teaching while others talk behind her back — you make me want to be brave.
There are many of you who make me want to be brave.
Who stretches you to be brave?
