I just watched, with utter awe, the Canadian figure skater twirl and spin gracefully through the air. She may not have had any more speed or skills than the other skaters, but she has a strength of spirit and character that I cannot imagine: her mother just died two days ago out of the blue...and the fact that this beautiful girl was able to muster the courage to get out on that ice and skate for herself, for her mother...there just aren't words. I was moved beyond belief.

  1. Such courage... Someone once said that courage was being afraid of something and doing it anyway, but maybe it's also being sad and doing it anyway, being uninspired and doing it anyway. Maybe courage is just showing up when staying in bed would be so much easier.
