when you need hope most

Last weekend was a nice break. We went over to the Tampa/Clearwater area for a couple of days to celebrate our anniversary and Joey's birthday, which was Saturday. We visited the Dali museum, spent a little time at the beach, and just relaxed. It wasn't long enough, it never is, but it was better than sitting around the house moping.

Then there was this week. What a mix of emotions. I started the week feeling completely lost, and ended it with surprises: an interview for a promotion at my job and an adoption situation our attorney is presenting us for late next week.

There's no guarantee that either will pan out, but it's nice to know that - even when you feel like you're at the end of your rope - it take too long for that tiny glimmer of hope to reappear.

Super exciting! It's amazing the whirlwind of emotions we as humans, and more specifically women are able to go through on a daily basis.

Good luck on both!!!!

I'm glad you have hope again, even if it's only a "tiny glimmer."

A wise woman told me years ago that any time you're feeling hopeless, wait three days and things will look up. (The "three days" concept is based on the resurrection of Christ.)

While I haven't found that things always look up in three days--sometimes it takes longer--I have found that, no matter how bad (or good) things seem, they always change eventually. :-)

I'm so glad these glimmers are here waiting for you. That's the tricky thing about hope-- as long as you keep moving forward, it doesn't matter if you feel "hopeful." Life can still work surprises for you.

Sounds like this weekend away was something you really needed. I'm glad you took it and glad there are some promising possibilities in your life right now.
