Focusing on Life, Week 19: Hope

This week in the Focusing on Life photography challenge Sally gives us the prompt:


“If you feel you know how to get what you want out of life, and you have that desire to make that happen, then you have hope,”
                                                                           ~Jennifer Cheavens

Note To Self:  Put the self doubt and worry on the shelf for this week and capture what represents hope in my life!!



It seems to me that I often feel these days that all we have is hope.  I am a hopeful person.  If I am down I am back up quickly.  It's my ability to find hope in even the darkest moments combined with gratitude for what's good in the world that keeps me on a pretty even keel.

I need quiet time to stop the noise and find that hope and gratitude some times.  New life always gives me hope.

This new family is on its evening swim into the sunset.

Wow that Emily Dickenson quote has been pretty popular this week. Yes a new family always proves hope!

Eternal hope there - we have so many of them and the eagles circle above.

What a sweet photo. Reminds me of the Gambol quail here in Arizona. This time of year we see the families with mama and papa in front and back and chicks no bigger than walnuts scurrying along in between them!

Wonderful post and picture. I too find that I need quiet time to get back into my good place. Love that quote as well.

What a perfect picture of hope! So many things can go wrong for that little family swimming off into the sunset.

Love your little family! Hopeful indeed!

A darling photo. It seems many of us chose the same poem from Emily Dickinson to share.

how perfect for Mother's day too. What a beautiful shot, just love the colour of the water that the sunset lends.
