It Takes Courage!

I recently came across this poem and thought it was certainly worth sharing.

 

I think for a parent of a special needs child, it is very appropriate.

 

Strength and Courage! That’s what it takes! May this poem encourage you and bless you!

 

 

 

 

 

IT TAKES COURAGE

Author Unknown

It takes strength to be firm,
It takes courage to be gentle.

 

It takes strength to conquer,
It takes courage to surrender.

 

It takes strength to be certain,
It takes courage to have doubt.

 

It takes strength to fit in,
It takes courage to stand out.

 

It takes strength to feel a friend’s pain,
It takes courage to feel your own pain.

 

It takes strength to endure abuse,
It takes courage to stop it.

 

It takes strength to stand alone,
It takes courage to lean on another.

 

It takes strength to love,
It takes courage to be loved.

 

It takes strength to survive,
It takes courage to live.
