Courage, dear heart

I hear these words in my mother's voice. She said them to me many times, softly.

To those who've asked if the tattoo is real, it is, but is it inked into my skin? No, it's a temporary tat from @sugarbooandco. I saw these words and they fanned such an aching fond memory in me, so I ordered a few tabs to remind me of a woman who was always sure I could do what was needed.

  3. What a wonderful thing she said. We could all use some courage. I just re-read your last post and it has made me cry again. What the hell is wrong with people?

  9. I love those words and the memories it brings you, and the idea the tat is temporary.

  10. My older daughter has the tattoo "Family" on her wrist. As she's adopted it's like the ultimate compliment I think. :)
