Hope Personified

I am the hug shared at goodbyes and hellos.
I am the small child’s smile, peeking shyly, behind your legs.
I am the high five to a Special Olympian’s extended palm.
I am the sun rise over tomorrow’s ocean blue.
I am the baby who grasps your finger, nuzzles into your chest.
I am hope. I am life.
I am the good, and I am here.

      Thank you! 🙂 Much appreciate those capital letters this AM. And the heartfelt three exclamation points — sipping my AM coffee and smiling I am.

      Thank you, Melinda. Watching these aquamarine waters this AM out our window — and seeing white caps. Gale force winds last night with sheets of rain, lightning and thunder. Another side of Ms. Bermuda — Mother Nature kicking up her heels!

        You’re welcome 🙂 sounds beautiful there! If I was Mother Nature, I too would kick up my heels there.
