Handle with Hope

“This is the sad thing about love: we love hard and we grieve hard.”
– Unknown

On Facebook today, a friend posted this truth on my wall: “Having to see someone you love so much in such pain is grief.” Unfortunately, they couldn’t be more correct. Yet, when doctors tell you there is no hope, have hope. Hope provides balance in the face of despair. Without hope, there would be no miracles.

I apologize that new posts have been infrequent these last few weeks. New photos and new work have had to take a back seat to caring for James as he struggles to survive. Thank you for your continued support as we cope with the horror and heartbreak of cancer.

I’d still love to get a vote from you in the 2013 COOL PHOTOBLOG AWARDS. As I’ve stated before, there’s nothing to fill out, no gimmicks, no requests for your email address – just a simple click and it’s done. THANK YOU for your support!

You can also find me on Instagram at @EarlHarrisPhoto, where I am posting photos captured and edited solely on my iPhone.


  1. Sorry you and James are having to deal with this. I went through it with my husband so I feel your pain. Having cancer is rough and so is being a caregiver. Try to find time for yourself. Cyber (((hugs))).


  2. Earl, the most important thing right now is to make sure James has a personal relationship with the Lord. We don’t always know when we will leave this earth, but we can know where we will be going.
