Five Minute Friday Writing on 'Brave" 3/16

On Fridays,

Around here we write for five minutes flat on Fridays.
We finger paint with words. We try to remember what it was like to just write without worrying if it’s just right or not.
Where your words are welcome, just as they are! (<–-Tweet this!)
1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. Meet & encourage someone who linked up before you.
OK, are you ready? Give us your best five minutes on:
:Brave… 

just the word makes me cringe ~what do i know about being brave,
yet how many times have i had to step into those oversized shoes... 
best thought of when not in situations
requiring the need for.
then again, when you need to be brave,
you don't have time to think about what you need to be being!
sometimes too, it's others who point out bravery
when all i've seen was doing what i was called to do.

these last few months of standing for justice for the elderly and disabled;
advocating for them in the larger picture,
has been a time i am needing to be brave.
but i haven't seen that til well into the 'being'!

there's my 5 Minutes on Friday ~
what is your response?
let everyone know what 'brave' is to you by linking here

Stopping by from the Gypsy Mama's Link up...enjoyed reading your post on the word brave. It does take a very brave person to advocate for those who are unable to speak for themselves--God bless you in your efforts! (Btw--cute play on words with the Love, Hope and CherryTea! ;) That verse is a FAVORITE of mine and part of my blog header)=) Thanks again for your post and I plan to follow your blog.

Thanks for your encouraging comments. I looked at your name when I saw your FB logo--I love that Old Country Rose china pattern!

Blessings on your bravery of being an advocate for the elderly and disabled. They need courageous people like you!

I think you have captured the essence of bravery...not thinking about what you need to do, just doing and being. Beautifully expressed!

How true it is that you don't have time to think about being brave when you need to be brave! Maybe that's a blessing in disguise, as I think it would dissuade me from my bravery if I had time to really think about what I was doing! Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this and for linking up with NOBH. Smiles -

I agree. It's hard to see that we are being brave when we are actually doing it. Great post. Thanks for stopping by and your kind comment on my blog.
