I got a new tattoo yesterday. It's on the inside of my left forearm--the same arm I have my son's first name tattooed on--and it's inspired by one of my favorite quotes from my favorite writer. I think you've seen the quote here before, but here it is again:
"Hope begins in the dark, the stubborn hope that if you just show up and try to do the right thing, the dawn will come. You wait and watch and work: you don't give up." --Anne Lamott
Hope is a wonderful thing. And I am full of it.
