Yes! We have Hope!

Just a quick piece of advice from my viewpoint. Stop watching the news! The 24 hour news cycle will drag you down and steal your hope! 

Instead, do something you don’t normally get to do while at home.. Do a puzzle! Play a board game ♟ Read a book 📚 Draw or paint 🎨 or go outside on the porch and listen to the birds sing 🐦 

The birds are out in force feasting on seeds, berries & worms 🐛 It’s Springtime in Tennessee!

“Hope” is the thing with feathers –
That perches in the soul –
And sings the tune without the words –
And never stops – at all –
 
And sweetest – in the Gale – is heard –
And sore must be the storm –
That could abash the little Bird
That kept so many warm –
 
I’ve heard it in the chillest land –
And on the strangest Sea –
Yet – never – in Extremity,
It asked a crumb – of me.

 ~ Emily Dickinson 

Stay positive and keep your hope. This will be over sooner than later ❤️
