Inspiration Tuesday: I Hope

What to say. After the events of this past weekend, we could really use a little pick-me-up, some sunshine in our lives to drive away all the hurt and anger and hate. Love is love is love is love is love, y’all, and so we keep striving, and loving, and working for a brighter tomorrow. These bits of sunshine have made us smile and laugh and sing along and dream a little bigger. We hope they bring some summer into your hearts too.

Quotation: “And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.” — F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby
