Where you are you may be hoping for fall and the leaves to change color (well, so am I a little). But here, I'm hoping for roses in October. My roses have started their second round of blooming and if I'm lucky they'll still be blooming into October. By then, the maples and oaks will be changing color and it won't be sad to see the roses go.
No matter what day it is, no matter where you are in life or location...there's always hope. So today, for those of you hurting and feeling all hope is gone and dead...lift your chin for me just a little and try to look around. I've been facing some seriously deep and hard issues here lately, but I absolutely, positively refuse to lose all hope. I'm relentlessly digging in my heels, clinging to my faith, and holding out the storm. When I can look around and find hope in a flower, I know I can find hope in bigger things too.
The hope is always there, we just have to claim it as ours. Love you guys!
