i just want to say









there is hope.
even when the soul-light burns low,
a flame barely lit
and the wick a mere smoulder
a breath of wind 
would snuff forever —
there is hope.

Hello Leslie,
Your thoughts are beautifully put. I was thinking about hope recently and what an important role it plays a persons life. Where would we be with out it?

May you be blessed today in every way!

I am a big believer in the power of hope. In Russia, they say that hope dies last.

A good friend of mine who lost her son once told me that without hope we have nothing.

I see hope in your blog nearly every day -- in your kind comments to others, to me.

Blessings and continued hope to you --

What a lovely poem. It is so true but easy to forget during black times.

Leslie dear, it looks as if we had the same theme doesn't it, hope. I love your spirit and your ever present fidelity to that which is good and joyful and beautiful. I know that it is very hard for you sometimes and I find you a deeply courageous human being. You are loved, Leslie.
