I have always been a big believer of hope, and of never losing hope. But what do you do when you and those around you feel hopeless? How do you help those who need help and most importantly how do you help yourself?
Even those that are not spiritual or religious will advise you to put your trust in God, the spirits, saints, or prayer. Giving up control and relying on hope can give us a sense of relief as we wait for things to work out for the best.
At this point, when my family is going through one of the hardest things we have had to go through, I am going to place my hope back on them. My family is like your typical family, we are far from perfect and there are a lot of holes and cracks in some of our relationships. I want to believe that our collective strength will help us get through this. I hope we can find comfort, strength and hope in each other.
I hope we use this time of grieving to come closer together and while the holes and cracks will not disappear, I hope that they at least become a little less noticeable.
Friends, please appreciate your family and those who are dear to you. Say that kind word to someone in need, reach out and be good and just to one another. Hopefully when you find yourself in a moment of grief, you can be at peace with yourself and those you love.
I have said this before and will say it again… The power of love is amazing! If we just take a moment and think about what is really important, we can come along way.
And whatever you do, never lose hope. In the end that’s all we ever really have.
