Spark of Hope #75 – Today, I’m pleased to say that I am celebrating my 52nd birthday. Life is full of challenges, yet it’s also full of blessings — having another birthday is one of them! The day began with the sweetest wake-up call a woman could imagine from her husband: “Good morning Babe…I love you…happy birthday…what would you like me to make you for breakfast?” As the sun poured in and I became more alert, I noticed a little pink box and card on my bedside table. All of these precious little gifts in celebration of the greatest gift of all — life! As I thought about that, I was suddenly overwhelmed with gratitude. My life has been filled with some tough challenges lately. I’ve had to mindfully work hard not to allow my circumstances to cloud my view. Every day, I can choose to focus on the clouds that obstruct my view or the light that lets me see clearly, despite the clouds. I choose to see the light of HOPE — that is where I always find 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. 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!
