Life has seemed odd having a printed version of the book in my home. It is also odd when you live in a new area, with new people in your life and they learn about your story. But in that oddness it is beautiful. Last night I was at the local Theater that shows older movies, where they were showing the movie “The Shawshank Redemption.” If you have not seen it, then you should. But its a movie about hope, when a man is stripped of everything he had and while in prison he does not lose his hope. Near the end of the movie the main character says this,
“hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things and no good thing ever dies.”
And in that moment, I realized that line and or statement is so very true. It holds so much weight and understanding of what hope is. Some of the new people I have met out here and learned of Working Towards Fin, and A Year Of Adventure, My Dear asked and wondered how I am so positive, loving, easy going. How am I ok and its only been 2 years. And I just say, its hope.
I hope, we build a well to help people
I hope, this story of Sarah helps people
I hope, that people will enjoy her amazing work
And I hope, I will get to see her again one day.
It’s hope that keeps us from fall completely apart in our most darkest days. We may not know what we are hoping for at the time, but it shows up, because its good and no good thing ever dies. Like the will to make a difference in the world no matter how small it is.
So, I hope at the end of this month and starting in the next, that you will order this book so that all of the funds made by selling it can go to building a well to be clean water to people that can only hope for it. And I hope you will enjoy it. So keep checking in because we will be launching the site where you can be apart of this adventure and order a book.
