“We live in a world where bad stories are told, stories that teach us life doesn’t mean anything and that humanity has no great purpose. It’s a good calling, then, to speak a better story. How brightly a better story shines. How easily the world looks to it in wonder. How grateful we are to hear these stories, and how happy it makes us to repeat them.”

“While there’s life, there’s hope.” — Marcus Tullius Cicero

Today’s quote is a favorite of mine. These are words I live by.

Life is persistent. Just think of the lone tree clinging to life on the side of a mountain. Or the man or woman battling cancer, refusing to give up. I watched this as I cared for our first cat Hershey during the years of her chronic illness. There would be days we were sure her life was about over only for there to be a turn around and she became her lively, loving self again.

Years ago I recovered from a medical situation the doctors said was hopeless. So while I continue to live and breathe on this earth I will know that the words of Cicero are true. As long as there is life, there is hope.
