My Son, My Courage

There was a time not too long ago that I would run away from anything hard and I surely would throw in the towel when anyone was unkind to me (I was like peace-out peeps).

Mean girls anyone?

I never had real goals and certainly never fully grasped that God wants all of his children to reach their fullest and brightest potential. Cause you know what???

YOU are CAPABLE of HUGE things people!

For some reason we simply don’t go for scary DREAMS.

And then my Son happened. He gave me courage to walk through a time when every single Doctor said there was no hope.

He was the engine that allowed me to say goodbye to many friends who simply didn’t agree with our new set of values or changes we were making related to health care.

There are more days than not where I feel ill-equipped and not worthy of anything good…

But then I think of the unconditional love of my husband and my children.

And there will never be anything I can do to earn the perfect value God gives me freely everyday.

It’s not in a rank. It’s not in money. It surely is not in material things.

It is about the humans around us and the impact we can choose to have on them each day.

Thank you Lincoln for being my son who has given me strength ❤️


your mommy
