Barbara, thank you for filling out a contact form and letting us know about finding a Hope bracelet! We love hearing the stories of where people find them, what they do with them, and, we especially appreciate being able to lift up the finder's hope.
Where did you find it?
Local Branch Library, Norfolk, VA
What did you do with it?.
I gave it to someone.
What hope do you want nurtured in 2012?
That God would use me to be a source of blessing and encouragement to those in my life that are struggling, either physicaly, emotionally, or spiritually.
Barbara, you are blessed to be a blessing--
may you have many more opportunities to reach out
to others who are struggling and offer them hope
in a variety of ways.
(Thank you for becoming a Hope Ranger--your bracelets will be in the mail to you
in a few days. Have fun!)
The last of the current batch to be sent out to Hope Rangers are ready. Where will they go? Where will they be released? Time will tell.
Release in Reno in March!
Hope bracelet released in New Mexico (in the entrance to the labyrinth-on the left) in March.
A sweet friend sent me this amazing bead--made into a necklace--with a beautiful swirl, and H-O-P-E. It couldn't have come on a better day. It was an important afternoon to be reminded that I am not alone--not that I had forgotten it--but even so, a letter, a word, a postcard, a call, any reminder that we don't walk through hard days alone is a good boost to the spirit. The gift is special, but her seeing this bead and thinking of me, and then doing something with the bead for me...that means even more.
Thank you to all my dear friends and family, near and fa, r who make the effort to stay in touch through mail, e-mail, visits and calls.
