Be Brave Sweet Boy

It takes incredible bravery and courage to go out into the world knowing that you will be misunderstood and unable to communicate.

This kid, and so many like him, do it every single day. They get a kiss from their mom, walk to the bus holding dad’s hand, and leave their safe place.

Think about that. If something happens to him, if someone hurts him, if someone is mean to him, he can’t tell me.

And yet he believes and trusts in the good of the world.

Every day I say a silent prayer over his head as I hold him for as long as I can before he pulls away to happily go to school. He is growing up and has very little time for this lovey dovey stuff.

My words are simple…’Please God protect him.’

I am not as brave him. I am not nearly as courageous. Moms and dads worry. But we learn to trust the world with our greatest gift because our children show us the way.

Be brave sweet boy. Keep believing in the world around you.
