Spark of Hope #40 – During my recent book tour to Arizona, I had the pleasure of riding in the backseat as my co-author Bob Deits, and his wife June, guided me over to the Banner Alzheimer’s Institute for a visit. The desert landscape was quite striking. It was dry and seemingly lifeless in one area, then vibrant with life-blooming flowers and trees in another. As we passed by “camel back mountain,” it occurred to me that our lives are just like the ups and downs of that mountain. June and Bob are a great example. With 60 years of marriage they’ve surely had their ups and downs, and they clearly know how to navigate each direction with love, faith and hope. Some might see our ride to the research institute as a “down” moment, but we were filled “up” with excitement and optimism. Afterall, Huge Outcomes are Possible Everyday–even in the midst of Alzheimer’s!
Camel Back Mountain – Up and Over with Hope!
Hope is like a spark; if 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 that says: Never forget to dream, play and imagine. HOPE is the extraordinary spark that says Huge Outcomes are Possible Everyday.
