Spark of Hope #74 – Nothing delights an author more than reader feedback. I keep every note, card and survey that I receive. They are like a “spark of hope” providing repeat blessings! Some are on my desk, some are framed, and some are saved in a special box to be read on rainy days. It seems that just when I need a pick-me-up, here comes another repeat blessing. Today, I opened my mailbox and found this note pictured below. Notes of gratitude are hope-filled blessings, making Huge Outcomes Possible Everyday for anyone who receives them!
“Thank you so much for the book you sent me. I took a step out in faith to ask and you cheerfully said Yes to my request for a signed copy of ‘When Mom’s Cancer Doesn’t Go Away.’ My daughter and I have gone through it [with metastatic cancer] and it really opened up a new form of respect from my daughter. She’s 12 and I’ve been going through chemo for 7 years. It’s her normal. She cooks for me, helps me and takes care of me! ~ Thanks Again, Shannon M.”
Hope is like a spark; if the conditions are right, it can spread like wildfire. Hope feeds the soul, ignites passion, and inspires others. A world without it is like a world without possibility. 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!
