It is in the darkness of life’s heaviest moments,
and in the grayness of the unknown,
that HOPE seems to show up and sit there,
waiting for you to grasp it,
and hold it close to your heart.
It becomes a single thread of strength
that pulls you out of the shadows.
It becomes a beacon of light that
guides you safely to the shore.
HOPE is what you have
when you seem to have nothing
else to hang onto.
But you have to reach for it.
And once you reach out and grasp it,
everything seems possible.
