Spring Blooms & Hope Springs


Life has been toying with us lately. Not with a sense of fun and adventure, but more like a barn cat with the last mouse of the night. Tossing us away only to catch us up over and over again, all claws and teeth but no merciful kill. There is no malice in it, but it is indeed hard not to feel so.

And yet still - I hope! Despite thinking it foolish to do so! Hope must be one of those things that humans "cant not" do.

We are due a win, and look forward to it.

I think when you lose hope - it's kind of over for you. Hope things look up for you!

Due for a win? Don't forget Monday's Lotto entry!

"Hope is like a road in the country; there was never a road, but when many people walk on it, the road comes into existence."

There is a quote in psychology, I don't know of whome? the quote says that " when there is a hope, there is a rope, so that you can get out of your troubles. Nice post
