A Ray of HOPE

Today this gift came in and I have to share… It gives me HOPE, something I have not felt in a while.

A Tiny Drop of Water
By: Bob Perks

A tiny drop of water washed away the land and buildings
fell, floating away with other people’s dreams.

Roadways planned and formed by huge machines and men who
sweat and hammer the world into shape were pushed away with
little effort.

People ran and cars clogged highways in an effort to stay
ahead of the possible destruction that tiny drop of water
could cause.

“Wait!” you say. “It was much more than a tiny drop of
water. The streams overflowed and the rivers broke through
their banks, causing a wall of water to destroy those
things.”

Yes, but it was made up of tiny drops of water. Raindrops,
which together wore a path right through my yard with
little effort, made up of one drop, then two, then
thousands, millions… all together they changed the world,
our world.

Can’t you see the significance in that?

I want to change the world. I am tired, worn out from
weeping at the sight of still another death not just on the
field of battle laid out by warriors, but in the streets of
every city, in the fields of the impoverished, desolate
reaches of the world. They are dying in my country and
yours by bullet, by starvation, disease, arrogance,
stupidity and pride.

A tiny drop of water gave me hope.

I am but one drop in the sea of humanity, but like the
rain I can join together with others and wash away the
hatred and pain I anguish over. One drop, then two, then
thousands, millions… all together we can change the
world. Our world.I want to change my life. I am tired of
being in debt. I am worn out from trying to keep pace with
the world. I have tried my very best to get ahead and find
myself falling behind each step of the way.

A tiny drop of water gave me hope.

It fell upon the hillside just behind my house. One single
drop of water joined with others forming a stream.

Like trying one more time. Like doing one more thing. Like
pushing one more inch to reach the goal, the dream I long
to touch and make reality. All my little efforts make big
changes.

The little stream that ran down my driveway, never having
been there before, began as one single drop, until one drop
after another, trying again and again, washed the soil away
and moved the tiny pebble and eventually the rock.

I cannot push away the fear nor change my life overnight,
but if I dedicate myself to one single effort each and
every day, I will see the power of changing little things
to make a big difference.

A tiny drop of water gave me hope.

I am just one drop in the sea of humanity. But I have the
power to change my life and the sacred obligation to move
the world in the right direction.

How?

One drop, then two, then thousands, millions… all
together we change the world, our world.

A tiny drop of water gave me hope.

Today, is another new day, an invitation to feel better.

Today, one of my long time “friends” told me how she really feels about me. I am grateful for her truth. And the saying goes, what someone else thinks of me is none of my business. I now know that the word ‘friend’ has new meaning and one less person I need in my life. Thank you for sharing is all I have to say.

Today, I get to focus on how to live and love who I am… becoming and believing in me.
