Tonight, on my way to an event, I was lucky enough to be driving at the time of a beautiful sunset. For most of the drive west, I found myself chasing the sunset. I took several deep breaths to take it all in.
I began to think how chasing a sunset is impossible. And yet that is exactly what I was doing. I got the sunset to last a little longer. I smiled as I felt I was winning.
But really so many things we strive for can feel like the impossible and yet we keep chasing the sunset.
Well I say, "Good for us." Hope is the greatest feeling. As a parent, loving and teaching my children and watching them develop into great young people gives me hope. Working with my peers and colleagues to create a better community gives me hope. Sharing my life with my husband and friends gives me hope.
Hope is healing. It sparks goodness, faith and connection.
I will continue to chase sunsets and I hope you do the same.
