"....hope does not disappoint us....."
By: Lynn Kotrba, Executive Director
Faith, Hope and Love; these are the three values that our family chooses to live by. Each of these values, individually, are strong, but together, I believe they are mighty. Faith is defined as the complete trust or confidence in someone or something and a strong belief in God or in the doctrine of religion. Hope, a feeling of expectation or desire, a feeling of trust. Love, a feeling of deep affection or a great interest of pleasure in something.
Over the past year, many of us have experienced struggles and hardships, that includes our family. From guiding seven children through distance learning to dealing with a high-risk pregnancy in the middle of a global pandemic, this was a year that we needed to rely on faith, hope and love to get through. But, as many of you have heard me say, we learned a lot about ourselves, our family and how strong we truly are. We also came to appreciate, even more, the support we have from family, friends, and even strangers, personally and at Harvest Hope Farm. We honestly would not change the past year in our lives.
Why do I say this? Because I think we all need to look back on our lives at times and think about what we have learned from our experiences, good or bad. We all need Hope, and although at times things may seen hopeless, they usually are not, if you look for the good, look for the positive, look at what you have learned and what you can do to make a difference in the situation.
".....hope does not disappoint us...." you will see this as a theme for Harvest Hope Farm as we continue to grow and expand. We want you to join us in having Hope, even in the most difficult times. Hope for a better tomorrow, hope for a cure for Huntington's Disease, hope for our youth and the leaders that they will become and hope for you!
Blessings and hugs - Lynn
