As with some of us in the training and seminar fields, our work is slow or at a standstill. Many like myself are using this time to organize things that we had postponed due to work. Right now, I am reorganizing my office with this newfound time. The truth is, I have saved over 40 years of paper and books. I found two boxes of ancestral gems that I plan to share with family members. In my search, I found this poem, HOPE. Considering the life events we are facing, HOPE might create some positive vibes for the future.
The poem HOPE was originally one of many inspirational poems my father Dr. Osborne English Floyd gave his patients who came to his clinic. I am not sure of the author. Please enjoy.
