Believe in Hope!

"Hope Is A Thing With Feathers"















"Hope" is the thing with feathers --
That perches in the soul --
And sings the tune without the words --
And never stops -- at all --

And sweetest -- in the Gale -- is heard --
And sore must be the storm --
That could abash the little Bird
That kept so many warm --

I've heard it in the chillest land --
And on the strangest Sea --
Yet, never, in Extremity,
It asked a crumb -- of Me. Emily Dickinson

This poem comes to mind more so now than ever before....because without "hope" and our friends" Dan and I would not have survived this last year as well as we have!

Everyday it seems I am coming in touch with more sadness regarding friends and family. The "circle of life" can be a cruel and unyielding task master and we have no control over it... "BUT"...  When young life is cut short or those close to you are dealt a bleak and desperate hand of fate, what can you say? You say have HOPE... How many times a day do we say "I hope"? Often we are so consumed by the onslaught of our own lives that we get lost and forget that our world is not entirely about us...I know I'm guilty of this, especially over the past year.
 

Recently, in one day, I had a friend lose their father, a loved one take a turn for the worse with cancer and a friend lose her home,  all this in one day... but did one of these brave souls lose "hope"? Never!   Take a minute out of your busy day and just throw some "hope" out there.....cause I know no matter which direction it flies someone will catch it!   Dan and I caught it and we are so thankful we did!
