A Little Hope Goes a Long Way


Do problems ever come alone? I guess not! They always came like bundled offers… ‘Feel terrible along with terrified’ or ‘Get scared and get scarred too’.

It is so easy to have pity parties in head and drown in sorrows and setbacks during these trying times.

In these darkest hours, a simple act of kindness, a helping hand , a smile from a stranger, an ear to listen, or a comforting word, can give hope that one needs so badly.

And this little hope goes a long way, just like this candle, dispelling and defying darkness in this room, singlehandedly!

    • I think a smile is soooo powerful. I remember reading this on Corinne’s blog some time back and it has stayed with me…
      “A man who jumped off the Golden Gate Bridge, left a suicide note “I’m walking to the bridge. If one person smiles at me on the way, I will not jump.” Sadly, no one smiled!
      Thanks Tulika. Glad you liked this drabble.

    • True, a smile, a comforting word, are so small actions but they are bOG on impact! Thank you so much for your kind words, Kathy! Love your micro-fictions. The feeling is mutual, I am blessed to be in your circle of friends too ♥

  1. There is saying that ‘Trouble comes in Threes’. While I am not sure about the exact number, I agree that problems never come alone. They like company. Well written. Like your take on the prompt. 🙂

  2. I agree, those simple gestures make a lot of difference. Recently, I had this experience of an auto driver giving me a gracious blessing when my husband was hospitalized and I looked helpless to him while traveling in his auto. It uplifted my mood and made wonders to the day. You nailed it!!

    • I know what you mean. Glad that the auto driver that day made your day. Hope your husband is fit and fine now. Take care and god bless, Madhavi 🙂
