So, when I think about Hope, these are the things that come to my mind.

H- is for Home
O- is for optimism
P- is for people
E- is for Eager

Hope is a powerful word when you think about it.  When you have hope, it makes you a better person.  However, you can hope for things that are not realistic too and then that just makes you crazy!
So, I try not to be too crazy.  Although I have been known to be crazy a lot of the time....but we won't go there right now. 

I am a pretty open person.  What you see is what you get.  Sometimes that gets me into trouble but I try most of the time to stay out of that kind of trouble.  Anyway, today I am choosing to be hopeful.  Because Hope brings power and optimism.  The first thing that comes to my mind when I hope is my family and my home.  I want my home to be a place where my children feel safe and warm and secure.  I also think about people.  The people in my life that I love and want to be happy. And lastly I think about eagerness.  Yes, I am eager but try to not be too impatient for the things I hope for.  Is that possible?  I sure "HOPE" so! 

So, today I feel hopeful. Hopeful that life will move forward in a good way.  Hopeful that someone is aware of our little family and that the blessings that we need or will need in the near future will be realized.  I hope my kids know just how blessed they are in spite of hard times. I hope that when the really important things come around we will be able to take care of them.  I hope that I am getting better in my old age.  And I hope for a bright future for all of us.  I sure hope I can endure my trials and always choose to keep a positive perspective no matter what.  And when all else fails I hope to always be found on the Lord's side.
