A Glimmer of Hope
I began this blog for the use of marketing my books and getting to know people around the world. Don’t get me wrong, I always wanted my writings to make a profound difference in someone’s life. That is the desire of many Authors who want to make the world a better place. I began posting my poems which are published in my first book and soon after began receiving emails with from strangers, sharing their personal stories: Which were related to the poem I posted. My heart-felt emotions compelled me to respond to their emails and offer comfort or just be someone who would listen. WE as a people (in whole) get so wrapped up with our own lives that we often fail to look around and see there are people out there who need to be heard, to feel compassion, to know they are of value, but we don’t see, or not enough. Years ago I overcame a terrible ordeal, too horrific to share with friends and family for some time. That incident left me searching, anywhere for some “Glimmer of Hope” that I could find someone to listen and understand my pain; so I began to write. I am asking my friends, followers, readers, to step up to a challenge, a new way of acting. Reach out whenever and where-ever you can. Give when you see something is needed, listen more, observe the quiet, and protect those who are weak.
Offer a Glimmer of Hope, where there was none before.
I love You All and God Bless, Barb
