Quote for June 7 (on le petit bonheaur)


link to image

"Hope for the moment. There are times when it is hard to believe in the future, when we are temporarily just not brave enough. When this happens, concentrate on the present. Cultivate le petit bonheaur  (the little happiness) until courage returns. Look forward to the beauty of the next moment, the next hour, the promise of a good meal, sleep, a book, a movie, the likelihood that tonight the stars will shine. Sink roots into the present until the strength grows to think about tomorrow."

    I watched Earth 2100 a couple nights ago and even though they tried to leave us on a positive note I have felt the hope of tomorrow seeping out of me like a tiny hole in a balloon. I needed this quote. I printed it out and put it on the fridge and my nightstand…baby steps back to faith in the future.
    Thanks Stacy and Ardis Whitman
