Hope Whispers

The day I saw Hope was the start of a beautiful love story full of adventure and healing. She fit in the palm of my hand. She was so fluffy I could hardly tell where her legs and eyes were. I was not in a good place in my life and was struggling to find meaning to continue. My sweet little dog showed me what it was to find joy in life and be brave when you feel so small. Hope always had a voice and she would whisper on my darkest days, “try one more time.” Like the famous quote. I lost my little dog a year after the sudden loss of my dad. I battled to find hope in life after my dad, even more so when I lost Hope a week after a cancer diagnosis. How much heartbreak can a person endure? I battle every day to find hope in this life but I feel her telling me “you are brave, strong, and loving try one more time.” Although I cannot see her or touch her, she remains my “Hope.”
