New Hope

Everyone, who has lived long enough, has had a frustrating day!

After many happy days, this one made me touch new depths of anger and desperation. It certainly would have been cathartic to let out some of those terrible feelings out in the open.

Thankfully, that is not what I will be sharing here. 20170501_175917

I was surprised at the healing power of a little sunshine, water, and natural beauty.


For many months, when I walked around the East lake, I had felt sad, as it had completely dried up. It looked like a big muddy crater. The West lake had water, but the level was going down every week. I was giving up hope.


I thought I would never see these lakes brimming with water, as some of the pictures my husband had shown me, almost a year ago.


Today, in the midst of hopelessness, when I went outside to clear my mind, a sweet, moist message of hope came before my eyes.


I understood that “everything will be good at the end”. It’s the wait that sometimes almost kills me.


I could not help filling my heart with beauty and gratitude. The negative feelings disappeared, stealthily, into thin air.
