Uncertainty is hope for the strong and concern for the weak.

Uncertainty and mystery are energies of life. Don’t let them scare you
unduly, for they keep boredom at bay and spark creativity.

About two years ago, a college student was handed a ripples card from
our original “Deck of Inspiration” that said “Never Give In. Never.
Never. Never. Never.” He appreciated this quote from Winston
Churchill, as he had recently been diagnosed with cancer. He has
been carrying the card around in his wallet ever since as he bravely
faced a roller coast ride of diagnosis, surgery, chemotherapy,
waiting, hoping, diagnosis, surgery, chemotherapy, hoping (oh, and
through it all he has been LIVING, LOVING AND BEING!).
Unfortunately the ride continues even though he was given a clean
bill of health just a few weeks ago; next week he begins radiation
treatment after being rushed into brain surgery last week.
His difficult journey serves to remind us that it can be difficult to
find hope amid the uncertainty. Let’s send positive ripples out into
the world this week to help all of us who are facing uncertainty find
a big splash of hope.
Peace, and healing,
