Last week amongst the many random dvr shows my husband watches,
I got captivated in e60.
I normally don't like to watch that show because they all seem to be depressing sad stories..
But i am glad I was listening.. listening to this young boy, Davan Overton's, perspective on hope.
what struck me most about this show was his interview:
(back story in case you missed the film above)
plays high school basketball on the JV team
and has a congenital brain defect
In the second half their team was ahead in the game.
Davan, entered the game with 5 minutes left
and had countless misses at the basket..
The reporter asked Davan's mom:
"What are you going through with each of those misses?"
Davan's mom was proud, proud that he doesn't get frustrated or angry..
proud that he just keeps trying.
The reporter then ask Davan:
"With each of those shots what are you thinking?"
"it's going to be like any other game, I usually miss"
"then why do you keep shooting?"
Everybody should have hope,
it's why we get up in the morning,
it's why we get ready for school.
Hope that somethings gonna happen thats going to change your life forever.
It's such a positive word.
It can carry you through the everyday challenges of life.
little or big.
"But that ye have patience, and bear with those afflictions,
with a firm hope that ye shall one day rest from all your afflictions."
After hearing Davan using the word HOPE,
I was quickly reminded to a HOPE necklace I received shortly after
posting on my blog about my miscarriage..
I don't know why but I often find myself trying to figure out
what I am suppose to be learning from "infertility".
Next month is our year mark from our miscarriage.
Not being able to get pregnant again, for who knows why.. is always on my mind
The necklace was from a local fellow blogger who does not personally know me..
I would find myself wearing the necklace just for "good luck".
It's a funny thing because you never want to get your hopes up,
but with each month it never fails that you do
and I'm not quite sure that's a bad thing..
I would hate to say i gave up hope,
because hope at the end of the day is what gets you through most trials in life..
hope that something good or better is going to come your way.
thank you for letting me vent/rant,
I just gained a whole new perspective on how powerful one little word could be.
