Having hope is what keeps us going. Hope drives us. Hope motivates. Hope encompasses everything we live for — even the silly things, like these…
Hope I can wear these sweatpants another day.
Hope I can sleep tonight.
Hope I can make it to the bathroom.
Hope the tile floor isn’t wet.
Hope I don’t have to walk through the grass.
Hope it’s not too hot.
Hope it’s not too cold.
Hope no change on my MRI.
Hope I can remember your name.
Hope they have a fork.
Hope I can just “splash-n-spritz” and not take a shower.
Hope my shoes are handy.
Hope I can stay awake at the movie.
Hope they have close parking.
Hope there is shade.
Hope there’s a place to sit.
Hope this post doesn’t go on much longer.
Hope I still have another prescription refill.
Hope my pill-case isn’t lying (This IS Wednesday, right?).
Hope these socks match.
Hope the car has enough gas.
Hope I can open this ketchup packet.
Whoops. Hope Tide-To-Go works on this.
Hope no one sees me dressed like this.
Hope I don’t have to go upstairs again.
Hope my appointment is in the morning.
Hope this isn’t fattening (Who am I kidding).
Hope this isn’t another robocall.
I can’t read this — hope I can find my cheaters.
Hope this ends before I nod-zzzzzzzzzzzz
Hope YOU have a tremendous 2022!
