“I was no one.
And, in a way, I still am.
But I learned long ago to take scraps.”

When I was still a child, I was no one. Because who could possibly care for a broken little girl like me? But, every damn day, I appreciated the fact that I was still alive. That alone gave me hope. Those rare bits of honest kindness from others were like icing on the cake. I took what I could get and fought through another day.

That was the world I knew. That is the world I still know. But that’s okay. Because I learned long ago to take scraps.

No matter who you are
or what you’ve survived,
you deserve more than scraps.
You deserve to be treated with importance.

Safeguarding Diamonds – Daily Quote

Jo Hawk


I guard my seconds, stick to my schedules and attempt to squeeze every ounce of productivity possible from my workday. Likewise, I construct my playtime around the activities I enjoy. They revitalize and recharge my batteries and prime my creativity pump. The horror comes when my time is hijacked and those diamonds Horace Mann refers to, evaporate into thin air.

If you woke to discover your stash of flawless jewels stolen, you would call the police, file an insurance claim and offer a reward for their return. Yet when your day filters away, lost forever, we shrug our shoulders and forget about it. Are those moments any less valuable than diamonds?

There are days when we know we will confront unavoidable downtime, waiting in Dr. Offices, at the auto repair shop, or the DMV. A little planning can help. When I expect I might have to wait, I bring a book to read…

The Keepers Of Hope ~ A Poem By Walt Page, The Tennessee Poet

Walt's Writings

She’s giving up
She will fight no more
Like so many before her
Everyday more and more give up
They have no quality of life
They are tired
With no hope
They no longer care
They will just fade
Into the shadows
But not us
Not you and I
We will not be beaten
We will never give up
We cling to hope
And fight through it all
We survive
Because we must
We are the Fighters
The Bearers of Hope
The Motivators
The Musicians
The Poets
We are
The Keepers Of Hope

~The Tennessee Poet~
