Hope is a gamble. You hold out your hand and wonder if it will be filled or stay, palm up, empty.

Trust, butterflies, and looking up……steady as she goes. Hope is belief. It is color and what’s possible.

Hopelessness swallows you inch by inch. It is feet shuffling and nothing on the horizon.

I will always bet on hope. Even if that hope is deferred I will not give up on it. It is a life-preserver. Itโ€™s what makes the world go โ€˜round.

Hope wins every time.

    Hope is all we have some days. If there is no hope there is nothing.

    I’m with you. I’ll take hope.

    tiff, I am hoping for you today…hoping that everything will work out…hoping you get the answers and care that you and your family need.

    So poetic…

    It’s true. Sometimes hope is what gets us through the hard days even if it seems like there’s no use and everyone says to just give up. Hope was what got me through some hard months and gave me strength to make it through until I was able to start letting go. And even today I haven’t been able to release hope completely.
