The Power of Hope

Updated: May 27, 2019


Managers' Note

Memoirist Anne Lamott once wrote, "Hope is revolutionary patience." 

In the waning winter months, as freeze and frost slowly yield to spring, the Guest House is coming ever more to life. Buds are starting to sprout, the grass has finally returned, and the phone has been ringing nonstop. Reservation requests poured in across February, including requests from eight new families hoping to visit four different facilities in March, April, and beyond. Parents whose son just started a 10-year sentence; a family of 11—grandparents, siblings, nieces, and small children—suddenly discovering a life-line to their daughter, sister, aunt, mother; a young man driving from Kansas City, MO to check on his friend. It's a revolutionary thing to hope in the midst of a season of such constraint and uncertainty. And yet, with each room night booked, each community dinner shared, each morning coffee poured, we see it:  the blooms are returning. The sun is shining. Slowly, and then all at once, community is growing in the most unlikely of places.

Something hopeful may arrive after all.

Aside from looking at the mileage polygon road bikes review of the sports bike you are buying, check the general condition of the motorcycle. Examine the oil level, the color, and level of the brake fluid. Check for dry cables, pitted fork tubes, leaky fork seals, bad electrical items, spongy brakes, and rusty chains.
