A Little Extra Hope For Us All
By definition hope means: to wish for something with expectation of its fulfillment, to expect and desire, or to look forward to with confidence or expectation.
This time of year it seems like we all have a little more hope than any other time. We hope for peace, good holidays, safety for family, or many other things. But there are some of us that hope for more. We hope for the love of our families and a good person without expectations. We hope for the wisdom to guide our children in hopes that they become the wonderful adults that we all know that they can be. We hope for the patience and understanding for the times that the children are not at their best.
Then there are those of us that hope for the more critical things in life. We hope for enough money to be able to give our children something under the Christmas tree. We hope for enough money to be able to keep the heat on and pay rent for another month. We hope that with the economy collapsing around us we have a job for another month. We hope to be able to buy food for another week.
So with Christmas looming just around the corner maybe we should all take a moment and remember these people that are hoping everyday for something better to come along. We need to give a moment to the troops and their families that are hoping daily for their safety. We need to give a moment to the struggling parents, both single and married. We need to give hope to the poor children without good homes. We need to give hope to the people without a home. We need to give hope to each other for every reason we can think of.
I know that it is still a few days from Christmas but with the snow blowing outside my window I was in the mood to send out a Christmas message from Tooters, The Wonder Pup and myself now.
Merry Christmas blogging world and here is some hope for all of us.
