High Tide


“Every one of us is called upon, perhaps many times, to start a new life. A frightening diagnosis, a marriage, a move, loss of a job…And onward full-tilt we go, pitched and wrecked and absurdly resolute, driven in spite of everything to make good on a new shore. To be hopeful, to embrace one possibility after another–that is surely the basic instinct…Crying out: High tide! Time to move out into the glorious debris. Time to take this life for what it is.”

― Barbara Kingsolver

I’m sure you’ve heard the term, “come hell or high water” at one time or another. When a high tide comes, it is then that we must grasp hold of hope and not let go. Hope will see us through every time. It is time to embrace hope, will you?

    Even a whisper of hope can be strong enough to see us through. I love your writing and your message Tammy.
