“The greatest joys in life are found not only in what we do and feel,
but also in our quiet hopes and labors for others.” ― Bryant McGill
Do you dream? Not the dreams of night, but more a ‘hoping in your heart’ dream. A hazy, lazy daydream of what might be. Imagining yourself living a life you did not dare to dream. Or of achieving something that was but a fantasy all your life.
I am finding I am dreaming more. Dreaming of those places I have always wanted to visit. Special walks where I can see sights that were unimaginable to me except for what I may have seen in pictures. And one of my dreams is to write more…to write books. I have many books down deep inside waiting for a voice, and a way to find the light of being published.
And I have loftier dreams. Dreams of a deeply found peace and love in the world. Kindness first as a way to greet those we know and those we are just passing by. Joy, health and bliss that come out of the dreams of others who dare to imagine they can find a cure or a better way.
I think it is good to hope. But really it is most important to dream. If we never dream, I fear we will be lost. And just like these snowdrops pictured here that give us a hope that spring will finally follow winter, I am hoping that my dreams will find reality as I come out of my year of observing, discovering and just being.
Note: Snowdrops mean hope in the Language of Flowers.
