A To Z Challenge Courage

 Bravery; fearlessness; a meeting danger without fear.

When ever I think of courage I can't help but think of a bride I saw on Say Yes to the Dress. She was a young girl who had just finished treatment for cervical cancer. During the show she said," Right now courage is my only option." I remember when courage was my only option when I found out I had the full mutation of the gene for Fragile X Syndrome and that my son had it. I remember needing courage to not have any more children and to place my son in a group home at the age of 5.

Courage is definitely one of those "easier said than done" qualities at times. I particularly liked the second quote you posted.

Oh my goodness..reading about Fragile X and your son. I've not heard of that before. My heart aches reading that. I'm visiting from the a-z. Courage is often portrayed as not being afraid, but it really is going ahead IN SPITE of the fear. I'm going to follow you, b/c I see you are a women of faith and I love finding over believers in the blogosphere. The best use of blogs is being inspirational. Come visit me, if you'd like:
