Spark of Hope #30 – A Slice of Heaven

Spark of Hope #30 – Traveling to Tennessee earlier this week I spotted another interesting license plate: TTLHVN. Just imagine if we lived each day as if we were in “TOTAL HEAVEN.” Would we treat others differently? Would we appreciate things more? Would we view our lives differently? I began receiving a slice of total heaven when I began viewing life through Pink-colored glasses. You might think it odd that I could say that about advocating for breast cancer. Yet, it’s not the cancer I’m looking at, it’s the miracles I see from those pink glasses. If you can’t see the miracles, maybe it’s time to stop focusing on the darkness or change your glasses. I hate that I can’t erase cancer, but I love being a hopeful slice of TTLHVN to survivors. Choose hope—that makes Huge Outcomes Possible Everyday!

Give the gift of Hope!

Hope is like a spark; if the conditions are right, it can spread like wildfire. Hope feeds the soul, ignites passion, and inspires others. Tucked inside each of us is a child-like spark that says: never forget to dream, play and imagine. HOPE is the extraordinary spark that says Huge Outcomes are Possible Everyday!

  1. Maryann,
    Good morning and blessings. Our glasses need to be more pink colored like yours for many reasons. We all need to get up each morning and get the sleep out of our eyes and get our glasses before we take one single step. You have encouraged this man today to look anew in hope cause I heard about two more cancer cases this past week. Thanks my friend for the hope, hugs and smiles always.

  2. Hi Maryann,
    If everyone in this world thought the way you do, it would be a much different, much better place for us all. Some might say that rose colored glasses are a way to imagine the world. Some say it is a way to perceive life as one would like it to be, which implies some aspect of wishful thinking. I don’t see the world rosie when I use my glasses, I see it a better world, the way it can be, the way we should all be willing to make it. Every day I wake up in this life, it reminds me of just how fortunate I am to use my arms and legs, to have given birth to three beautiful sons, to know I am loved. Perspective gives us the ability to reevaluate our lives and ourselves in life, it’s necessary if we want to make adjustments for a better self. The things I cannot see are the most important things in my life, and if using my pink glasses helps me to see this, then bring on the pink! 🙂
