Why I want a coonskin hat

I was blog hopping and found this prayer. It is a prayer that I heard for the first time a few months ago when I attended an evening mini retreat for Catholic women. I am tired and somewhat overwhelmed. I have been thinking alot, probably too much, about the myriad struggles we face as we strive to grow closer to the God who made us.

One thing came to me today when I was reading a children's biography of Daniel Boone to two of my three children -- courage. It is so simple and so hard.

I told our Little Man that I'd get him a coonskin hat. I think I'll order one for myself too. I am not naturally courageous. Maybe the hat'll help.
