Wednesday Edition for 4/29/2020 - Hope Builds

Real Estate Agent with DFW FINE PROPERTIES 0506509


If there is anything we learned in recent months is that life is changing.  Whatever the reason or the season the natural environment is a good source to build hope.



On the 11th day of March, 2020, I walked on the grounds of the University of Dallas. I stood beneath the Bell Tower, looking up at the clouds and trees. Consistent with the quality of a hopeful heart, I longed for spring to splash pastel colors all over Texas. It was there, I remembered, the value of never stop learning and to keep faith and hope alive to build a better future for you and I.  


The following day I stopped at the library. I was reminded of my humble beginnings of learning how to read. Dr. Seuss made it fun! Who knew this quote was so pertinent to our past, present, & future. 


"You can get help from teachers,

but you are going to have to learn a lot by yourself,

sitting alone in a room." ---Dr. Seuss


Whether it was foreshadowing or a coincidence, in my room, I am learning in my house is a safe place to question about who, what, when, where, why, and most important of all, why not?  I'm sitting here behind my desk thinking that the world of tomorrow will look, feel, smell, and taste nothing like the world today. And so, with my imagination I'm learning to build hope for not just dreaming, but for living. Honestly, the value and importance of learning begins with accepting the truth that a new future is always built on hope. ---Patricia Feager

Patricia I agree the quote is very true, and we certainly have a lot of learning time right now

I think hope is so important to people, hope for a better tomorrow, hope for a better outcome, hope for a better job, hope for a better day, we all can choose to be more hopeful and positive about what lies ahead. Thanks for the reminder to be not just always learning but to be ever hopeful.

Nick Vandekar, 610-203-4543 - You're a wise man. Obviously, your trips around the world taught you plenty! In all seriousness, we must build hope. We must not  destroy by being careless. Who would guess, people all over the world would be put in time-out? As survivors, it's up to each and everyone to be reminded hope means that in order for us to build a better tomorrow, it means knowing discipline, actions, and improvements are necessary for all ages. And that applies to all humans, including doctors, scientists, leaders, politicians, the media, parents, children, teenagers, business owners, employers, employees, our government, the military, our neighbors, and our friends. In the process of learning, leave no one behind.

  The upside of all this isolation is that my chess game has dramatically improved over the past 2 months but I really do miss my "normal" life although at this point... I have no idea what our new "normal" will look like !

marti garaughty - I think we are all wondering the same thing. All I know is what I have experienced in my lifetime and what I was told from my parents who survived the Great Depression and WW1, etc. I feel confident in saying, our generation became more materialistic than theirs and products became more disposable. When I think back to my grandparents furniture, it was real wood, heavy, custom made and they never bought anything more than they needed. Come to think of it, the furniture outlasted them!

As far as creativity goes, my mother was very frugal. At a young age she taught me to make my own dolls out of old socks and sew button on faces. In other words, she told me, my problem was, I wasn't using my imagination....  You know, they say, history repeats itself. People like you who have a great imagination will probably succeed better than me.

More amazing photos, Patricia! Have you ever thought of doing a coffee table magazine - perhaps, "Flowers of Flower Mound?" You are such a skilled photographer and wonderful would be a hit, for sure!

As for the topic - I will always be one who encourages hopefulness - without hope, we really have nothing. We should always give others hope - always!
