|What Gives Me Hope
||God, and places like this... people who care and believe we can make a difference.

I believe the world as a whole... is undergoing a spiritual awakening.
Random act's of kindness... they're not so difficult... and they also give SO much to the giver... why do so many consider this such a foreign concept?

||Talk about what Jesus has done in my life and share the beauty of being in God's family and let them know this is for everyone who accepts His loving gift. My life was miserable, I wanted to die... then I nearly did. My near death experience a year ago changed my whole life.
|What/who changed my life and why
||Anna B... she passed away when I was 18. She was my stand in grandmother who was a tenant and family friend who lived upstairs from us thruout my childhood... She was full of endless love, taught me much, and influenced my childhood profoundly... greatly impacting who I am today.
My mother... whom I am proud to call my best friend, as well as Mom.
My two deceased brother's... losing them so young... and in the ways in which they passed... affected me in ways I cannot begin to describe. (One to suicide at age 28 when I was 19... one to AIDS complications when I was 28 and he was 39.)
Don... a friend who's fallen out of touch... but who helped me see possibilities, shed old fears & constraints, and embrace... me.
My animal companion's... past and present.
More, but that's enough to share here. :)

||We frail humans are at one time capable of the greatest good and, at the same time, capable of the greatest evil. Change will only come about when each of us takes up the daily struggle ourselves to be more forgiving, compassionate, loving, and above all joyful in the knowledge that, by some miracle of grace, we can change as those around us can change too. ~ Maíread Maguire
There is no Challenge more challenging than the challenge to improve yourself. ~ Michael F. Staley
