If you got out of bed this morning, I am proud of you. Because your bed is really warm and nice and the world outside of it is full of people and things that often times aren’t warm or nice. Sometimes it is easier to just stay in your bed where you are safe. But you didn’t. You were brave you you got out of your bed today, and I am so proud of you.
