Thinking about last night’s election results reminded me of the children’s story “The Little Engine That Could.” The little train engine was at the bottom of a big hill and doubted it could climb to the top. But as it kept repeating the words “I think I can.  I think I can,” it slowly inched up the hill.
slowly began to believe… and reached the goal! 

Believing in ourselves doesn’t necessarily happen all at once. It often happens … step by step … moment by moment … day by day. And before we know it, we reach our goal.

Maybe it’s time to believe. Believe in a future … with possibilities … with leaders of integrity … of hope.

Maybe it’s time to take a cue from Tinker Bell
“I believe!  I believe!”
