“Hope is a good thing.  Maybe the best of things.  And no good thing ever dies.”

That’s one of my favorite quotes from one of my favorite films, The Shawshank Redemption which is an adaptation of one of the greatest pieces of storytelling ever penned (in my humble opinion) Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption by Stephen King.  

I think I’m so drawn to this story because of it’s strong and impactful theme of Hope.  It’s one that resonates with me as it echoes one of my personal truths and strongest held beliefs: Hope is the single greatest asset a person can have.

There is a special kind of power in hope. The kind of quiet, steady, power that lives in perseverance, in faithfulness, in sunny days after cloudy ones, and in joyfulness.

And it’s the stories of hope, springing fresh that have inspired Olive Tree. Olive Tree was first made available to subscribers of the My Scrapbook Art newsletter during my feature there in March 2012 and I’ve now I’ve revamped it a bit and brought it home to The Lilypad.
