“Hope comes from a large family….” …a family with many siblings….

I created the following pages several years ago, using words written by Maria, from Enermazing, Creating the Life You Want...a comment she wrote on the blog Mirth and Motivation.

Maria’s ideas continue to deeply move, strengthen and inspire me…

so beautiful, so supportive, so nurturing and so encouraging…

A short youtube video of Maria’s “poem” about Hope, including music, which was suggested by Maria….separated by line…….such lovely ideas she offers to us all…

And so, the beauty of what we all offer to each other….
“hope” and all of her siblings…
her large and loving family…
as we live our daily lives….
as we connect and relate….
as we sense the sadness and need in others….
as we offer hope and all of her siblings
to ourselves and those around us….
may we live each and every one of our days
giving and receiving hope with bountiful goodness…

~

And so….
this is a “hope” that I have…
that we’re continually aware of “hope,”
and that we offer it freely to ourselves and others
This is a hope that I have…

Thank you, Maria….

(added the next day….
I just found out that Maria is back posting again: “I am still here”
Welcome back Maria)

  1. This is truly beautiful Kathy. It gives new meaning, at least for me, to that oft repeated saying “there is always hope”. When you look at hope’s family, you realize it is absolutely true that there is always hope. I am going to rely on the family to get me through, always.

    • I love how Maria expanded on the simple word …”hope”…and showing us those components that go into it and support it.. Maria expressed this so beautifully….she was a real inspiration! (she doesn’t seem to post anymore..I think that she lived in Greece at the time of that quote.)

    • What a delight to hear that Maria is back… I’m so happy to hear that! And what wonderful timing… Her words of “Hope” got posted again just after she started posting again! (she was very helpful and encouraging to me back when I was first starting blogging and really lacked confidence in what I was doing… she was so kind )
