Dreams We Carry


She woke each morning with a glow of hope,
not because a new dream had been born,
but knowing the one she carried
inside her heart would last.
-Jodi Hills, An Imperfect Life

There's so much on my heart today- so many questions. My morning news read felt like an ambush; surreal headlines jumped out at me from everywhere. There's a storm coming and some days I feel the weight of it. ...

But. But I also awake with that "glow of hope" that something Better is coming, and the dream I've carried in my heart all this time will last. No matter what.

Here's to the dreams we carry lasting.  -Brin

(This week I'm featuring quotes from my favorite little book of all time. It's called An Imperfect Life by Jodi Hills. It sings, and its song will make your heart dance and cry. :)

So needed that quote and thought for the day. Seems that slogging through a divorce and our wacked legal system will never end even after 4.5 years and having reached an agreement. It's very disheartening, so the quote was much appreciated! Thank you Brin! P.S. if this is too personal feel free to edit.
