Today’s BEDA Day 3 topic is: My Favorite Quote. I have many favorites. Words inspire me and pick me up when I’m down, but there is one quote in particular that I have loved for many years. Technically it’s part of a poem, but it’s the first quote in the poem that I love the most.
When I was in high school I read an Emily Dickinson poem. Something about it struck me. It’s a poem that has followed me through out my life.
In my darkest times I’ve stumbled across this quote. In my happy times I seen it in random places. Something about it is just so perfect and beautiful no matter where I am in life.
The rest of the poem is really beautiful as well. I love how Emily Dickinson describes hope as always being around, yet never demanding anything. For lack of a more eloquent way to describe it – it’s like hope is there through your whole life quietly in the background, there when you look for it, blending in when you aren’t.
For years my mother used to say whenever she say a bald eagle she would think of her mother who passed when I was young. I often think of my own mother (who thankfully is still just a phone call away) when I see cardinals. She’s been such a source of hope and inspiration for me. I think that is why this particular quote sits in my own soul…
