Brave: having or showing courage. Since I am fighting a variety of invisible illnesses including; Fibromylagia, degerative disk, spinal stenosis, arthritis to name a few. Nobody knows I am showing courage. Nobody knows what is it like to walk one day in my shoes but I am in them everyday. I have been a single mother for 17 years. I raised two great children who are on their way to being successful adults in their field of interest and I love watching them enjoy their lives to the fullest. Is my job done? Not yet. They both still live it at home, I work full time and every day I am brave for them. For myself, I try for the best life I can live every day. I always smile no matter how much it hurts. I put on my Brave face until I go up to my room at night with my dogs. Then I can unwind, frown, cry or whatever I need to do to get ready to be Brave again the next day. I was overjoyed when I found your site a week or so again because I need strength. As I get older its more and more difficult to face the challenges every day, I need to continue to be BRAVE and your bravelts will help me do so. Thank you for being there when I needed it.
