Believing in Hope

I could not find the REBLOG button! I am sharing this anyway…Don’t know, but it made me tear up a bit. It’s a good read. This is not the first time I have reblogged from her or shared about her. But she really has a story to tell…

Hope is a powerful thing.  It leads people to books.  It teaches people to read.  It shows people how to use their voice. It directs people to a path where their light can reflect outwards and brighten the world a thousand times over, a million times over.” (Ra Avis)

I BELIEVE IN YOU

“Why Rarasaurs Make Bad Inmates”

I am sharing something really nice to you all, courtesy of blogger Rara. I wanted to automatically reblog, but for the life of me, I could not find the button.

Rara is a really nice girl with a great sense of humor, regardless of the hardships she went through this past year. Any other girl would have given up, but it’s good to know those hardships only make her stronger. Below is a cute comic strip about her that her friend Cookie made before they parted ways. Now, you know me, I like comics, so I thought of sharing this to you. I think Cookie has quite the potential as a comic artist. Who knows, maybe Fate will give her another chance?

If you want to know the story behind this strip and why the title, I recommend heading over to the blog Rarasaur. Feel free to send love to Cookie, too! And also, I highly recommend you read as well Rara’s beautiful post, Cause of Death. Title might sound sad or even clinical to you, but it really is a heart-tugging, brief but sweetly-told love story…

This is a follow up to my post titled “SORRY.” Perhaps you would like to extend some help. If you want to know the background of the whole thing, I have linked to relevant info in my post, or you can simply hit the previous-post arrows from the page I’ve reblogged.

SORRY #atozchallenge2014

I had promised to take pictures of my dinosaurs and share to you. I knew you would love them. I never forgot, but I never got around to do that yet. And now I hate myself for exactly that reason, for not getting around to do it much earlier. I’m sorry, Rarasaur.

When I started writing for the A-to-Z Challenge, I didn’t exactly have a theme. I just said I’d write stuff that interested me. Then as days went on, I realized I wrote about happy things, positive stuff. So I intended that for the rest of the challenge, I would be writing about happy, positive things. That has changed, if only for today. It so happened that I was to write an “S” post. SORRY seemed quite appropriate now.

We just met last April through the A-to-Z Challenge. I liked the look of her blog, I liked her posts, I LIKE-d her posts, I decided to FOLLOW. Reading stuff she wrote about herself, I felt we may have stuff to talk about. I liked Rarasaur. And so it made me so sad suddenly to see a post by another blogger whose links redirected to Rarasaur’s last post before she was to leave  (the one that follows has just been posted by her husband for her, you might want to check it out as well). For a considerable amount of time, I had been in and out of the WordPress loop. Well, seems I missed a lot. If you want to read more about it, Rarasaur wrote this, too.

My own experiences were not as bad as hers, in fact, mine were quite tamed, but I can say that I know what if feels like to be at your lowest point. I know what it feels like to be accused of something you know very well that you never did and would never do. I know what it feels like to be bullied.

Rarasaur, forgive me. I promise I will take pictures of my dinosaurs and post them here and write you down even as a tag, for you to find them more easily. As you have requested from us, I have also shared your story through the links…

I won’t be home yet so I can’t take the dinosaur pics, but for you, I took pics of our office dinosaur, as you will see above once you see this post….I still wish you the best. and hope to read you much sooner than we or you expect…
