There is so much you can do with words. You can enlighten, uplift, inspire. Make someone smile. You can encourage, empathize, sympathize. Make someone feel loved. You can discuss, elaborate, philosophize. Make someone think. You can create, imagine, express. Make someone dream. There is power in words. You can make someone overcome.

And then you came into my life and reminded me that it’s never too late to hope.
