Dandelion puffballs are wish makers. Hope is bigger than a wish. Hope is an important part of living. It is a joy in beginnings and a peace for tomorrow. I hate cancer. It has hurt so many of the people I know and has killed many people I admire and love. Yet, today, I read an article about a treatment to ‘paint’ tumor cells so they stand out and can be removed. This is hope. Strides in Diabetes care are made each day and I can hope for a Diabetes free tomorrow for others. What a blessing doctors and scientists are for the new ideas they bring to patients. For the chances they give those of us who live everyday with the horrors of disease. They are not just wishes blown across the breeze, they are real people finding real solutions and bringing hope.
