have you ever been in a place where you are afraid to hope? for one reason or another, life has schooled you in the lesson of disappointment and loss. it has been a long winter. and it seems like the spring will never come. i have been there. to the place where you think nothing can change. but i also know that this doesn’t last forever. that spring does eventually come. that is the amazing thing about seasons, they end. let go of your fears. be still and know. listen closely. breathe in. hope again. fly away.
