Whispering Hope

(Photo Credit: 123rf.com)



 When life seems shattered,

the brightness seems to dim,

grief heavily weighs in,

setting the tone for despair,

and it seems so hard to cope.


Then comes a gentle breeze,

the innocent smile of a child,

the warm ray of the morning sun,

bringing with it through the darkness,

the helping hand of whispering hope.

    1. Thanks a lot, Jo. I appreciate it.😄😄 I’ve missed seeing you around. How is the recovery process going? I know it’s gonna be a long road after Harvey, but with the team spirit and solidarity, I believe Texas will come back stronger. Please take care and stay blessed.

      Warm regards to your lovely family.🌷💕💞


      1. You’re so kind to ask. It truly depends on whom you ask. For us, we are doing well. For others, it’s much rougher. But I do believe that at the end of it all, everything will be okay. Take care of yourself my dear friend. ❤️
