We cannot touch it. We cannot buy it. There is no formula on how to create it. We can wish it, and we can feel it, comes sometimes when we most need it, and can leave abruptly when we let go....
A very close friend, Carmen was diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer; she may not be with us to celebrate the New Year.
My words can assure her that everything will be fine, even tough I feel it may not be that way.
She has HOPE, like a blinding energy that illuminates her days. I am amazed on how happy she is and on how much strength she gives us, instead of us giving to her. Almost as if she knows that everything will be ok.
.... And sometimes, I feel that we are the ones that stopped hoping, and she just carries on...
Today, I HOPE that she keeps brightening our lives, and that her heart keeps filling ours with the same light.
