I'm so excited...I just went on Etsy, looking around for...well, whatever catches my eye, which I do on a regular basis, and guess what?? My Print "There is always Hope" made the front page! There it was, staring me in the eye!! Well, this has pretty much made my day! For those of you who aren't familiar with Etsy, the Front Page is the homepage, so it's something that everyone going to www.etsy.com sees. It's fabulous when something of yours makes the front page, because it gets such great exposure. I've only made the front page one other time, and I didn't even know about it at the time. So, this was pretty thrilling for me! "Hope" is one of my favorite prints, too, because I love finding and photographing random graffiti, and I was just wandering around Bath last year during my travels of the UK, and found this. Hope is one of my favorite words, too, which is probably what inspired me to take the picture.

Hope, to me, is the belief that something good is happening, that something good is coming right around the corner.. it's the belief that there IS going to be a good outcome, that things WILL turn out for the best. Hope means to me that there is a better tomorrow, that things will get better, and I can't wait to see that!!!

"You will be secure, because there is hope; you will look about you and take your rest in safety" Job 11:18

"Be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the Lord"
Psalm 31:24

We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope. -- Martin Luther King, Jr.

Hope is always available to us. When we feel defeated, we need only take a deep breath and say, "Yes," and hope will reappear. -- Monroe Forester

As we welcome our new president, in this time of economic and personal turmoil, hope is important to have and hold onto.

What does HOPE mean to you?
