Friday Frills - Hope


Hope looks for the good in people instead of harping on the worst. 
Hope opens doors where despair closes them. 
Hope discovers what can be done instead of grumbling about what cannot. 

Hope "lights a candle" instead of "cursing the darkness."
Hope regards problems, small or large, as opportunities. 
Hope cherishes no illusions, nor does it yield to cynicism.

Hope sets big goals and is not frustrated by repeated difficulties or setbacks. 
Hope pushes ahead when it would be easy to quit. 
Hope puts up with modest gains, realizing that "the longest journey starts with one step." 

Hope...sometimes that's all you have when you have nothing else,
But if you have it, you have everything.

Hope really is everything! Anything is truly possible if one has hope in their heart! I can not express enough how beautiful these words are, I love the line " the longest journey starts with one step" that in itself evokes so much hope! You are a light of love and strength my dear :)

Take care,
