#celebratelu15 Promises of Hope

This has been one of the hardest and longest weeks ever, filled with sadness and punctuated with anxiety; yet, interspersed in the darkness, there are glimmers of light and promises of hope!
  • Her caregiver found out that my mother loves California rolls (and wasabi), so she tamed my cantankerous mom with some!  She sure didn't have to do that!  
  • Common Core curriculum writing can be challenging; yet, our team crafted some pretty incredible frameworks this week.
  • Bolts of beautiful fabric always makes me smile. It was hard to choose when there is so much beauty in such a small place, but I did!
  • Clouds, somehow outsmarting the setting sun created some magnificent sunsets, the kind that take your breath away.
  • A double rainbow (I did not capture it because I was driving) appeared in the sky after a nasty storm the other day, reminding me of God's promise and miracles on the horizon.

The celebrations amongst the sadness and struggle can sometimes be the sweetest!! A double rainbow. Yummy treats for your mom. Successful work products. Happy fabric. Sounds like you are an expert at finding the hopeful in the darkness! Thank you for the inspiration!
