I've been receiving seed catalogues for about a month now. Yarn catalogues arrive year round. Even though our family is on a fairly tight budget right now, I really enjoy looking through them.
It's not that I spend all my time out in the garden, or even knitting (although my family may feel differently!). I just enjoy possibilities and potential. Turning the pages, I can imagine working towards a creation and how satisfying it would be to have something even remotely like the beautiful color pictures before me.
Maybe that's why I work in education. Each child seems so full of possibilities and potential. When I see them achieve even a small portion of their dreams, I feel hope for humanity, for our world, and am excited to be part of the process.
What gives you hope and keeps you going?
