Hope is beyond important and I sometimes wonder what it looks like.

I got a glimpse this morning as  I saw the rapture of the dogs greeting the day. They tore out towards the backdoor but the oldest one hesitated for a split second and melted my eyes with his with a glance of  love and gratitude. I headed into the kitchen with warmth in my heart and hope for the day ahead.

What’s your sense of what hope looks like?

  1. Hope for me is US , all of US – shutting out things we don’t need to know and thing we don’t need to talk about!, then with the space left filling the gap with as much creativity as possible, sharing as much creativity as possible, sharing our creative creations and lifting ourselves up!

    Hope to me is US doing what ever we need to do for each other, absent of all negativity, TV RADIO – Just US!

  2. Hope is the excited and incoherent report, via video call, from our 3year old grandson about his first day at Nursery, and the photo of him and his older brother (6 years ) off to school in their uniforms. Not to mention the look of pride on my son’s face on the video call. 💜

  3. Hope to me is waiting for favorable results when health is threatened. A good outcome that meets our expectations in life..I find I use the word “hopefully” in my posts when talking of results expected in the general day to day happenings but sometimes life throws a curved ball to make us take notice…Your dog showed appreciation of your actions in giving him the freedom of going out with his pals.
