searching for dragons

looking in

“Anyone can slay a dragon ...but try waking up every morning and loving the world all over again. That's what takes a real hero.” ~Story People

I found this quote this morning.  My heart was drawn to it because first, it has a dragon in it and my baby girl loves dragons.  Second, the truth it proclaims about love.  How brave a thing it is to love!
So in a world that sometimes gives up on people quickly, I am choosing to slay the dragon.  I am choosing to love a husband that sometimes breaks my heart.  I am choosing to love my children who sometimes overlook the work I do for them.  I am choosing to love my friends that sometimes hurt me.  Not because I think I am wonderful and perfectly perfect in every way.  Quite the opposite.  I am choosing to brave because I hope they will be brave with me.  I am hoping that just as I will be a hero in their lives, they will be my heros as well and love me when I am ugly and difficult.  Because I can be one ugly dragon.
