Today’s topic: Brave
Brave is a very tough word to define. When I hear the word, the first person that comes to mind is my niece. She’s dying from brain cancer and she’s only just turned 14. She had her first tumor removed a little over two years ago.
I know it must be really difficult for her to wake up every day and not know what it’s going to be like. Maybe she wakes up everyday knowing exactly what it’ll be like. Either way, she still gets up. She’s even gone back to school again after having a tumor bleed just before Thanksgiving/her birthday. It is basically a stroke and things are really hard for her right now. But she keeps going. She goes to school. She deals with all of the people who tell her to live her life to the fullest. She deals with people that say things to her like, “I would just give up!” I’m sure there are days she wants to do just that but I think she lives for us…her family. I think she knows we aren’t ready yet and so she has to keep doing it until we are.
To me that’s brave.
I don’t know if I could ever be that brave. Could I live for my children and husband? No matter how bad it was? We all critisize but no one knows what they would do if it were them.
