Pounding straight from Weekly Photo Challenge is another moving theme called “Hope.” In a world that needed so much healing, compassion and love this theme came at a perfect time.
Hope That Love Will Find Us
Most of us at one point in our lives hoped that our one true love will find us. For some it came swiftly with fireworks and all. For others it took years, perhaps starting as friendship ending with a vow that will seal a love enduring all odds in life.
Everyone has a love story to tell. Each one is unique and beautiful in their own way. However our story goes, one thing we have in common, it is the happiest moment of our lives. That feeling of floating on air, face all glowing and a heart bursting with joy will never be forgotten. It’s that very feeling that will inspire us to go above and beyond so we will hopefully spend the rest of our lives with that one person who swept us off our feet.
Hope That Love Will Endure Despite Of Imperfections
After the romance, reality begins. First comes the pressures of parenthood, then a house with a ridiculously priced mortgage, then a car upgrade to fit the growing family, then the pursue to get a better paying job requiring more stress, then more bills and responsibilities that never seems to end. On certain moments they can drive you to a transient crazy spin but in the end, something powerful brings back your sanity. These are just a few test of true love. Oh, yeah! There are more. Call it the twisted witch curse that a lot of fairy tales are inflicted with. How we face these obstacles with our other half will decide if we’ll make it through the storm and madness. In all these, the hope that love will endure despite of imperfections inspires us to give every inch of what we got. After all, true love is worth shedding every ounce of our strength. To fight for it till our last breath. Insane? Not to the one who believes in love without question.
Hope That Love Passes On With The Future Generations
I try not to watch too much news because mostly what I see are the effects of anger, pride, deceit, greed and hate. So instead, I try to concentrate on the hopeful side of things. And for that, I don’t even have to go far to find a source of inspiration. Everyday, my son’s bright and optimistic view on things gives me hope that for as long as there are children like him out there, this world will never ran out of love and reasons to fall in love. For every child that smiles, laughs and melts your heart, a hope that love passes on with the future generation is born.
Hope That Love Will Be Genuinely Pure And Real
One day while checking my son’s school bag, I saw a note. It was a simple sweet letter from my son’s favorite “girl” friend. She drew a boy and named it after my son and drew a girl with a red heart and named it after her. Then she wrote below it, “For my friend Adrian.” I smiled. It was a beautiful expression of innocent love and affection among children. The next day, not to be outdone, he too drew himself and his friend complete with armies to protect her from the bad people and zombies. He then made a simple note, “To my friend Bea…”
After a week of car pooling of my son and his friend, I decided to bring him to school myself. I was in fact so exited to walk him to his classroom. Then when we were about to leave the house he asked, “Where’s Bea?” I told him that her mom already brought her to school and that I would be driving him myself. He looked at me with the saddest eyes and started to cry. He sobbed so hard I had to get out of my sit and hug him. I told him, “It’s alright. Stop crying now. We’ll tell Bea’s mom tomorrow that she will pick you up so you can be together.” Like words of magic, he stopped crying, wiped his tears and smiled shyly. I didn’t say anything anymore. At that point I kind of knew what he felt and I simply smiled back as I headed to the driver’s seat. As we head towards his school, I told myself, “I was once like him.” I knew right there and then that the cycle of life and love has started its course.
What gives you hope? What do you hope for? Has love found you yet? If not, don’t give up. It will. At times it comes in the most surprising way and when it does fireworks will light up the sky…
