The Oxford English Dictionary defines hope as ‘A feeling of expectation and desire for a particular thing to happen.’
But hope is so much more than that…
Hope is sunshine on a crisp morning,
it’s watching my nephews and niece learn something new,
it’s listening to my favourite songs,
it is watching Great British Bake Off with my mam.
Hope is a bunch of fresh flowers,
a nice smelling candle,
car journeys with my dad,
watching Marvel movies,
my dog resting his head on my lap.
Hope is a good cup of coffee,
having my family together for birthdays,
the smell of a new book,
laughing at a stupid joke my boyfriend told me,
a nice email, tweet or comment.
Hope is yellow,
it’s crunchy leaves in Autumn,
a walk in the park,
peanut butter cups,
waking up at 3am and knowing I still have hours left to sleep.
Hope is being grateful for both the big things and the small ones.
Hope is knowing that there will be more of them.
Hope is believing that bad days won’t last forever.
