where the fun begins

Courage is...

facing another
day, knowing what is coming,
hoping for the best


Courage is...

writing through the blocks
finishing the scene, getting
it done without fail

Courage is hard, and I think you're on to something. And man, that little guy looks ready to take on the world. Sometimes I wish I could get away with wearing armor to the grocery store...

Courage is facing down your fears even while you're still very afraid. But your little man looks good and ready to face whatever is about to come his way :-)

Cute little football player you have there:) Once again, loving the haiku. I have some I wrote about winter - I'll have to dig them out in a few months. They are so fun to write!
