On The Wings Of Hope

“Once you choose hope, anything’s possible.”  ~Christopher Reeve

I have heard hope whispers in the darkness. I think hope, this fragile thing, soars on mighty wings. It moves in obscure and empty spaces and challenges us to rise.

For some of us, along this journey of hope we discover spiritual grace, this faith which allows us to let go of expectations and accept what currently is and what will be. I don’t know if this is a surrender that occurs or if it’s a deeper understanding within us.

Whether it is hope turned to reality or it’s simply grace, sometimes it is nothing short of miraculous. Lives are altered.  Priorities change. Blessings come in many forms, both large and small.  The most important process is picking up the pieces of a life and moving on…

    • Thank you. Our son is doing very well, above and beyond all expectations though not quite ready to resume “normal” activity. H’es taking time for his body to heal from the trauma, but has finished PT, OT, and ST…things are looking good. We are grateful and incredibly blessed.

  1. Sometimes I wonder if things happen to us to open our eyes and remind us of the importance of what we have, to remind us that sometimes only the grace of God will get us through, but that we have the strength to survive and to come out of it with a greater appreciation for life. I am so glad your son is doing well; your child hurting is like a piece of you crying.

  2. Suzi, you expressed your feelings so exquisitely in this post and I can SO relate.

    “….along this journey of hope we discover spiritual grace, this faith which allows us to let go of expectations and accept what currently is and what will be. I don’t know if this is a surrender that occurs or if it’s a deeper understanding within us.”

    I think it’s probably both. Through surrendering, we come to a deeper understanding within ourselves; experiencing spiritual grace, faith and hope.

    Miracles.

    X ya, my friend. Continuing to share MUCH “energy” with you!

    ((((( You )))))

    P.S. Love the quote from Christopher Reeve.

  3. I’m glad you have been blessed with your son’s gradual recovery. I guess if there is a good part from the accident, it would be renewed appreciation for what we can sometimes take for granted when life is “smooth sailing.”

  4. The Good Lord never gives us more than we can handle, sometimes we go through something like this just to make us appreciate more the things and people we have, we went through a similar situation with both of our sons at the beginning of the month, not near as serious but still enough to wake ua all up a bit.

    I am proud to hear your son is doing good.

  5. I think hope can be as small as a flower petal or as magnificent as eagle’s wings. Hope is whatever it needs to be when we need it most. But the force behind it is unchanging. Thinking of you and your family. Take care. xoxo

  6. I have been thinking about you and your family (but that is really nothing new), but I have been praying for you all. I have been wondering about the status. I am glad to read here that your son is on the mend.

    Continued thoughts and prayers!
