“These are but clouds unobstructed and high,
fingers of clouds reaching up through the sky.
If they can reach without stopping – then so can I.”
~ Penny L Howe, 2012
The Reaching Hand
Almost from the moment of birth we are reaching.
… reaching for the stars
… reaching for the moon
… reaching for a better life
… reaching for understanding
… reaching for love.
Along the way we falter, and in the chain of human life – there are those with wisdom, experience and strength of character to be there during those times of uncertainty.
If we but look for them and, if needed, ask for help.
It is a process of growing, learning from mistakes and moving forward.
The empty hand is a sadness. It represents dreams unfulfilled, loneliness, bitterness and defeat.
But it does not have to be. You need never stop reaching. Not ever.
There is always hope, there is always possibilities to be explored.
There is always the ‘one more time’ to make the difference, just as long as you keep reaching.
Never stop, never give up. It isn’t easy and sometimes it will be the hardest thing you’ve ever done … but it is worth the extra reach … to make it happen.
Keep reaching, and if you’ve reached your goals
than extend your hand to make that difference for another.
Always reaching, always growing, always loving.
