♥ ¸¸.•*¨*So let the sun shine in, face it with a grin.  Smilers never lose and frowners never win.  So Let the sun shine in, face it with a grin.  Open up your heart and let the sun shine in.♥¸¸.•*¨*•♫♪ 

It’s a new day so shine on...

Hope is like the sun, which, as we journey toward it casts the shadow of our burden behind us.

Samuel Smiles

With hope we are able to find light in the darkness around us. With all of the other violence, negativity, and despair being thrown at us by the media, I feel as though we need to be reminded of hope. 

Hope is an important tool. It helps us to get through times that otherwise would seem unbearable.  Hope responds to the aspirations to happiness that have been placed in our hearts.  It is what helps us to get past the negativity of the world we see today and allows us to believe that what we see before us can change.

We have always held to the hope, the belief, the conviction that there is a better life, a better world, beyond the horizon.  

Franklin D. Roosevelt

As long as we have hope and faith alive in our hearts then nothing will be able to bring down our spirits. It lets us see the good in every situation.  Even in a hopeless situation hope remains open to surprise.

Keep the faith. The most amazing things in life tend to happen right at the moment you’re about to give up hope.

Hope is a seed God plants in our hearts to remind us there are better things ahead.

We can never give up and never stop hoping. There is always something to be grateful for, even in the toughest of times, and something to be hopeful for too.



Hope is indeed an important tool. "With hope we are able to find light in the darkness around us. "

I don't know where I'd be, were it not for hope. I like that quote of FDR's!

I don't know how I missed this good one. Glad I checked back. I too, was hit by FDR's quote. I remember the sadness when he passed!
