NEVER LOSE HOPE

If you can find beauty in the colours of a small flower, then you still have hope…
If you can find pleasure in the movement of a butterfly, then you still have hope… 
If the smile of a child can still warm your heart, then you still have hope… 
If you can see the good in other people, then you still have hope… 
If the rain breaking on a roof top can still lull you to sleep, then you still have hope… 
If the sight of a rainbow still makes you stop and stare in wonder, then you still have hope… 
If the soft fur of a favoured pet still feels pleasant under your fingertips, then you still have hope… 
If you still offer your hand in friendship to others that have touched your life, then you still have hope… 
If receiving an unexpected card or letter still brings a pleasant surprise, then you still have hope… 
If you still buy the ornaments, put up the Christmas tree or cook the turkey, then you still have hope… 
If you still watch love stories or want the endings to be happy, then you still have hope… 
If you can look to the past and smile, then you still have hope…. 
If, when faced with the bad, when told everything is futile, you can still look up and end the conversation with the phrase “yeah….BUT..” , then you still have hope… 


Hope is such a marvellous thing. It bends, it twists, it sometimes hides but rarely does it break… It sustains us when nothing else can. It gives us the reason to continue and the courage to move ahead when we tell ourselves we’d rather give in… Hope puts a smile on our face when the heart cannot manage… Hope puts our feet on the path when our eyes cannot see it… Hope moves us to act when our souls are confused of the direction…. Hope is a wonderful thing, something to be cherished and nurtured and something that will refresh us in return… And it can be found in each of us and it can bring light into the darkest of places…


Never Lose Hope!
