Hope is where we can always fall back to, isn't it?

All the times over the decades that I should have recognized I was in a hopeless situation, I failed to know it. Not sure if it was the little bird refusing to stop singing the tune, or my inability to let go of the last thread of hope. Maybe they are the same.

What a beautiful thought/quote and lovely illustration. It's quite true, too, isn't it?

Olivia said...

Me, too, Kristine. Hope is a safe place and a shelter in the storm. Peace, O

Rick,
It sounds like they are, doesn't it. I don't know if you really were in a hopeless situation or not...were you? I am currently wondering if I am, but still holding onto hope despite that because I cannot currently let go. Love, O

Kelly,

Yes, it is so true. It never stops. Sometimes the way out is painful, but there is always a way out. Love to you, O
