“Dreams, Miracles and Hope”


“It’s perfectly normal that when waiting for a really big dream to come true it seems like it’s taking forever, you wonder if you’re doing something wrong, and you feel like you should just be happy with less.

But I promise you, no matter how long it takes, once it happens it’ll seem as if time flew, you’ll wonder how you ever doubted yourself, and you’ll feel like you should have aimed a little higher.

Aim a little higher.  I know you like the back of my hand.”        (signed)   The Universe         (Mike Dooley, Notes from the Universe, August 9, 2013)     



“If the dream is held close to the heart, and imagination is applied to what there is close at hand, everything is still possible.”     (Robert Fulghum, All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten)



“Miracles:  You do not have to look for them.  They are there, 24–7, beaming like radio waves all around you.  Put up the antenna, turn up the volume – snap … crackle … this just in, every person you talk to is a chance to change the world.   (Hugh Elliott, Standing Room Only weblog)



“Without realizing it, we fill important places in each other’s lives.  It’s that way with the guy at the corner grocery, the mechanic at the local garage, the family doctor, teachers, neighbors, coworkers. Good people who are always “there,” who can be relied upon in small, important ways.  People who teach us, bless us, encourage us, support us, uplift us in the dailiness of life.

We never tell them.  I don’t know why, but we don’t.

And, of course, we fill that role ourselves.  There are those who depend in us, watch us, learn from us, take from us.  And we never know.

You may never have proof of your importance, but you are more important than you think.

There are always those who couldn’t do without you.  The rub is that you don’t always know who.”  (Robert Fulghum, All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten)



“The inability to open up to hope is what blocks trust, and blocked trust is the reason for blighted dreams.”     (Elizabeth Gilbert)   



“Dream small that your dreams may come true.  Dream large that you may always have a dream.”    (Robert Brault)
