Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday. In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too.

Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response. If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your Aloha Friday post link below. Also, please consider linking back to this post so that others can join in, too!

Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!

So my question is . . .

What’s the most courageous thing you’ve ever done?

    Stayed strong and followed my gut even when I was being pressured! I gave birth to my oldest 100% naturally! My twins were born via c section…I was VERY pressured to have them naturally as well but I followed my gut and had a c sec…it probably saved my daughters life!

    Hard to really say. As a parent, I think a lot of decisions have been courageous. It is often hard to do the right thing when it is not the most popular.

    Helping to take care of my dad as he suffered from lung cancer. He passed away only 8 months after he was diagnosed.

    I’d have to say it was when I left my abusive husband.

    The most courageous thing I’ve ever done wasn’t by choice! I was diagnosed with Lymphoma last fall and finished chemo early this year. I have a very supportive and wonderful family that helped me so much but the worst part was I was too weak and tired to spend quality time with my 2 year old daughter. The cancer is now gone and I’m feeling great and spend my entire day and night with my daughter – we are making up for the past few months!

    Becoming a mother as a teen when it seemed like the whole world was against it.

    About 21 yrs. ago my daughter was at my home giving her first born a bath & my Mom was there too & neither is of any use in a crisis. The baby was crying and I had just come up from the basement with a laundry basket and the baby stopped crying all of a sudden. My daughter was yelling at the baby and blowing in his face and my mom yelled at me to do something. My daughter looked at me with those eyes and I knew I had to do something & do something right now. I grabbed the baby from her by his leg and upside he went. With the heel of my hand I smacked him on the back and nothing. He was starting to turn gray and felt like a rubber doll and clammy. I looked at his eyes and his pupils were fixed. I thought now or never I turned him upside down while yelling shut up. I smacked him good enough not to break his back. The sound of an old grandpa given up a morning cough and flem shooting across the room and the sweetest baby cry in the world. I gave the baby to his Mommy even though I wanted to hug my first grandson myself, his Mommy arms is where he should be that moment. Yes, I saved my grandson’s life and I thank God every day for making me stay home that morning to do the laundry. Have a nice weekend.

    wow there are many things that some would consider courageous and others not so much but standing up for my beliefs in a crowd where I know they are not wanted is one that I am proud to say I try to do

    As lame as this might sound … living life one day at a time. There are things in our lives that we have control over but there are also things that we can’t control at all. ;)

    I was in the mountains of Montana backpacking. That took courage.

    I saved my first husband’s life. I actually took the gun out of his hands and then drove him cross-country to our home to get psychiatric care.
