We in our family and many of you here today believed that Beau would someday take his sorrows, elations, struggles, faith, curiosity, and voice into the world to share his story of overcoming, courage and inspiration with others.  In our many family gatherings in the past two weeks, we decided that there is no reason that his story cannot help heal others, even in his death.

So to begin this work we are starting with the Bnote.  Beau in our home was referred fondly by the nickname “B “or “B-man” and he loved music.  Thus, the Bnote was created. On the back it says, you are enough.

All of us here can relate to the words we speak to ourselves about being enough.

Am I smart enough?
Am I pretty enough?
Am I strong enough?
Am I creative enough?
Am I good enough?

Consider the enough question you ask yourself.

The answer to that is of course…you are enough. God tells us that we are fearfully and wonderfully made.  Right now at this moment you are enough. Start there and begin to grow.  Start there and begin to contribute.  Start there and begin to share your heart.

So how does the Bnote work?

Take a Bnote

Use the card to bless others in whatever way moves you.

The Bnote has a website, Facebook and Instagram account that enables the giver or receiver to share your Bnote stories with the hope that no card has only one story.

So we leave you with a quote from Theodore Roosevelt, shared in the book Daring Greatly by Brene Brown:

It is not the critic who counts; not the many who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.

The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause;

Who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.

Beau only needed to spend a short time with anyone to make a lasting impact we offer you the opportunity to do the same.
