Fostering Optimism ~ #UpbeatAuthors

In this moment, are you optimistic?

Brenna handed the book to Catie. “Every child should have a copy of their own Treasure Island.”

Catie watched as Brenna walked away to speak with Isabelle and the shopkeeper. Her eyes drifted downward to gaze upon the book. She allowed herself that moment of wonder and smiled. It felt good to smile for no reason other than she was happy. Catie didn’t know how long it would last, but she was tired of fearing her future. She longed to believe Ethan and Brenna when they said everything would be all right. –From An Angel Called Gallagher
