Spark of Hope #88 – This month I’ve experienced some rather hard knocks. My website was hacked resulting in an unsightly advertisement populating all the pages. It took almost a week to remove it and restore our site’s hope-filled content. Then I developed an infection, and while on a course of antibiotics my system went haywire. The allergic reaction left my skin itchy and literally scorched — my scalp, hands, and ears remain in recovery-mode. Between those ailments and tending to my elderly parents after both took a tumble (thankfully, no broken bones!), I ventured into a mini-pity party. Let’s face it, we all need to go there every once in awhile. The real test isn’t the trial though, it’s what we do with it. My son emailed me a video story last night that reset my perspective, inspired me, and renewed my sense of HOPE. Huge Outcomes are Possible Everyday — even when life’s hard knocks appear insurmountable!
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!
