There is a Gaelic proverb that says our reactions are but echoes of our past. I can see now that that is exactly how I've lived--reacting to the present based on my past. Can I change that? Can hope send its roots deep and allow me to react/interact while looking at the present or even to the future?
This state of calm has brought hope, more hope than I have had in a very long time. I will hold it, nurture it and cherish it.
