Courage

Photobucket

"It is in the small things we see it.
A child's first step,
as awesome as an earthquake.
The first time you rode a bike,
wallowing up the sidewalk.
The first spanking when your heart
went on a journey all alone."
- Anne Sexton

Sometimes when I am lacking courage,
I repeat these lines from my favorite poem.

Today is one of those days.
