Happy heroes

 photo 805.jpgCourage, real or imagined, can make a person bigger—larger of soul and of confidence. "Big hearted," it once meant.

When a parent has the heart, and soul, and confidence to stand heroically between a child and fear, that takes courage. Defending a child from criticism and negativity (even from our own) makes us bigger.

  1. Love this! I found myself recently having to stand between my oldest teen son and his un-admitted fear about succeeding. During a heart to heart talk, he said he wasn't afraid of anything, but I could sense the fear lingering so I LOVINGLY confronted the situation. All in all when I asked him if it was true, he admitted to it and by the grace of God WE were able to squash that fear!
    Thanks for sharing this!
