“Life expands and contracts in proportion to one’s courage.” – Anais Nin

This blog was inspired by the birth of our son, Isaac, who entered our lives a year and a day after we pledged our love to one another our wedding day.  Opening one’s heart to another human being creates an instant vulnerability, and requires tremendous faith.  Trusting your heart to a mate is scary.  Trusting the world when holding your child in your arms is downright terrifying.  To do either is nothing short of courageous.   This blog is a place for us to record to the thousand courageous acts, small and large, that give our lives meaning and richness.
