Gives Me Hope

Like Santa gives a child hope of better things to come, mankind gives me hope! -me

Thanks to Dana, The Homesteading Housewife for turning me onto the site Gives Me Hope. I went to the site and was immediately engrossed in the simple gestures that give people hope!

The site brightened my day and I thought I would share some of the simple things that give me hope!

1. Photography, I capture so much through the lens that my naked eye misses! Tender moments between a father and his child, generations of hands that tell the family story, the love of a newly married couple, a father's love for his newly married daughter. I could go on and on.

2. A significant other caring for her dying partner in spite of it all!

3. A total stranger who opens the door for a young mother who has her hands full of groceries and babies.

4. A mother, struggling to make it on her own, who gives up food so her kids can eat.

5. A blogger friend, whom I have never met, telling me she is there if I need to talk.

I could keep going but you get the idea! These things all give me hope that the world can be a better place for all of us if we just work together and help each other! What have you witnessed or experienced that gives you hope?

It is amazing what a camera sees isnt it.

I am so grateful for many of my blogger friends too, and you are no doubt one of the best!

You have been so helpful in my journey, and I am honored to have gotten the chance to call you my friend. I hope someday we get the chance to meet to.

Oh and you GOTTA sing again for Vlogemotions. I have so missed your voice since it so touched me the first time.

Love and Prayers,

I, too, find hope in simple gestures. I think we are too much in a hurry and we miss the little things. I like this thought--I'm going there to see. Thanks for the lead.

When the simple gestures come as second nature, that's when we know we're getting somewhere. :)
