The Gift of Miracles



Hope begins in the dark, the stubborn hope that if you just show up and try to do the right thing, the dawn will come. 
Anne Lamott


Hope is the companion of power, and mother of success; for who so hopes strongly has within him the gift of miracles.
Samuel Smiles 




Thrive & Grow



 In your heart, keep one still secret spot where dreams may go and be sheltered so they may thrive and grow. 
Louise Driscoll


  When you do nothing, you feel overwhelmed and powerless. But when you get involved, you feel the sense of hope and accomplishment that comes from knowing you are working to make things better.
Pauline R. Kezer





Be Faithful


“Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.”
Mother Teresa


“The things you do for yourself are gone when you are gone, but the things you do for others remain as your legacy.” 
Kalu Ndukwe KaluBe Faithfu




Recognize The Possibilities


“Only if you’ve been in the deepest valley can you ever know how magnificent it is to be on the highest mountain.” 
Richard Nixon

“You do not need to know precisely what is happening, or exactly where it is all going. What you need is to recognize the possibilities and challenges offered by the present moment, and to embrace them with courage, faith and hope.”
 Thomas Merton




A Life of Gratitude


To speak gratitude is courteous and pleasant,
to enact gratitude is generous and noble,
but to live gratitude is to touch Heaven.

Johannes A. Gaertner

To live a life of gratitude
is to open our eyes to the countless ways
in which we are supported by the world around us.
Such a life provides less space for our suffering
because our attention is more balanced.
We are more often occupied
with noticing what we are given,
thanking those who have helped us,
and repaying the world in some concrete way
for what we are receiving.

Gregg Krech
