What gives YOU hope?
Edited to add what gives me hope, in addition to my lavender growing. Strangers being kind to other strangers, like the women who are offering to give their wedding gowns to brides screwed by the Alfred Angelo bankruptcy. People going out of their way to help, like the elementary school teacher in New York who began a food pantry for the families of the school's students. When I smile at strangers and they smile back at me. My firm belief that there is life after this one because energy can neither be created or destroyed, only changed. The waves of the ocean because no matter what, they keep moving.
