As so often happens, it appears that I'm not finished with yesterday's subject.
"Creativity takes courage." I would like to reverse that to "Courage takes creativity."
In our ward (congregation) are several families whom I greatly admire for their courage and their creativity. Each of these families has a large number of children, with the mothers electing to remain at home. Money is tight, but these families make do. Could they survive without the courage and creativity they exhibit? I doubt it.
Living on a modest income isn't easy, but these families make it look so. Savvy shopping, couponing, bartering, a willingness to do without luxuries--these families do it all, including paying tithing and fast offerings. And they do it with a willing heart.
Creativity and courage come in all shapes and sizes.
So, for today, I am grateful for families who are courageously creative.
