Spark of Hope #24 – When I’ve had a particularly stressful week, I find myself wondering if my efforts make enough difference to continue. In those moments of fatigue, my hope gets clouded by my inability to see clearly. Then as if perfectly timed, a spark of hope comes into my path. Yesterday, I was introduced to a friend’s co-worker who said, “I know about you. Your book helped my children during my dad’s battle with esophageal cancer.” I started to say, “I haven’t had time to write books for dads yet.” She stopped me mid-sentence and said, “we needed tools to help my children and you gave us that.” In a smidgen of time, I went from wondering about my efforts to wishing I could do more to realizing I’d done just what I was meant to do. Even when your spark of hope flickers, Huge Outcomes are Possible Everyday!
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!
