Courage Emerges Through a Broken Heart

Once there was a young boy who highly admired his father.  One day, the father asked the young boy to put the word “courage” ON his heart.  However, the young boy thought that the word “courage” should go IN his heart.  His father smiled and looked at the young boy with pride and said “yes, but the heart is very strong and resilient, sometimes so hard it is even closed off.  Therefore, we can only put the word “courage” ON your heart.  The young boy carefully took hold and picked up the word “courage” and placed it ON his heart as his father had requested.  The father then smiled with a tear in his eye and said, “it is only when the heart breaks open, that courage can fall IN and begin to grow into something truly amazing.”
