you still have hope….

My Dear Friends,
  
 
As we celebrate the Holiday Season and New Year to come, I want to share something special with you, a message of hope,which I received from someone very close !
  
It’s been said that hope is one of the greatest gifts you can give to another person, especially when they need a little more. 
  
May this message of hope warm your heart and bring a smile on your face, the whole season through.
  
Conspire to inspire with hope!
  
 
YOU STILL HAVE HOPE
 
(Author Unknown)
 
If you can look at the sunset and smile,
then you still have hope.
  
If you can find beauty in the colors of a small flower,
then you still have hope.
  
If you can find pleasure in the movement of a butterfly,
then you still have hope.

If the smile of a child can still warm your heart,
then you still have hope.

If you can see the good in other people,
then you still have hope.

If the rain breaking on a roof top can still lull you to sleep,
then you still have hope.

If the sight of a rainbow still makes you stop and stare in wonder,
then you still have hope.

If the soft fur of a favored pet still feels pleasant under your fingertips,
then you still have hope.

If you meet new people with a trace of excitement and optimism,
then you still have hope.

If you give people the benefit of a doubt,
then you still have hope.

If you still offer your hand in friendship to others that have touched your life,
then you still have hope.

If receiving an unexpected card or letter still brings a pleasant surprise,
then you still have hope.

If the suffering of others still fills you with pain and frustration,
then you still have hope.

If you refuse to let a friendship die,
or accept that it must end,
then you still have hope.

If you look forward to a time or place of quiet and reflection,
then you still have hope.

If you still buy the ornaments,
put up the Christmas tree or cook the supper,
then you still have hope.

If you can look to the past and smile,
then you still have hope.

If, when faced with the bad,
when told everything is futile,
you can still look up and end the conversation with the phrase… “yeah…BUT.,”
then you still have hope.

Hope is such a marvelous thing.
It bends, it twists, it sometimes hides,
but rarely does it break.
It sustains us when nothing else can.
It gives us reason to continue and courage to move ahead,
when we tell ourselves we’d rather give in.

Hope puts a smile on our face
when the heart cannot manage.

Hope puts our feet on the path
when our eyes cannot see it.

Hope moves us to act
when our souls are confused of the direction.

Hope is a wonderful thing,
something to be cherished and nurtured,
and something that will refresh us in return.
And it can be found in each of us,
and it can bring light into the darkest of places.
 
NEVER LOSE HOPE!
 

Have a Merry Christmas, Happy Holiday Season and the Best New Year 2010!

    Jatinder saheb, hope is like the seed… it can spring a tree even in a desert! The content of the poem you have posted shall show footprints to one who has lost direction and shall take heart to restart his journey… Merry Christmas to you and family.
