Hopping (& Hoping) on the Hope Train

I saw this post over at the Queen of Arts (Kim). I left a comment. Then I received this comment from Liz, the coordinator of the project at Helpmate,

"I saw your comment response on the Queen of Arts blog post about Hope Notes, which is my project that I've created. I want to say that I absolutely LOVE your art here and would love to see more of it... I encourage you to participate in the hope notes project if you would like! :)"

That sealed the deal....I can't resist someone as sweet as that! Woo-Woo, I was definitely on board.

I drew a new girl over an old card. As she developed, I was gifted with her wisdom.

even when it's still a little blurry.

We are sacred creatures who have the ability to hope & hope & hope,
even when it seems there is none.

The stars are very, very, very far away.
We will never be able to embrace them.
Yet their light reaches into our hearts.

When things seem dark....

We can look again with a different eye.

Our lips can say, "Don't give up. I believe in you."
Sometimes we need to say that to the person we see in the mirror.

We can wear hope on our mind like a Queen's crown.

Inside I've written this message to us all.

You have many more sisters in the world than you will ever know.
We stand behind you when you need a push.
We are beside you when you want to skip.
We go before you to light your way.
We are all around you and we encircle you in our love.

Never give up on you, even when its seems everyone else has.
If you do, let it only be for a moment so you can remember, in comparison, how it feels to not give up on you.


I send you love and belief and deep cleansing breaths.
Your destiny opens before you. Leap into it Sister!

I have hope that this action will make a difference in someone's life because the fact is that no matter who we are or what kind of life we have, we all experience hope-less-ness. If I can ease that in someone else, I feel more hope~full that our world can change............if we change it.
