Tammy over at tammys reading writing challenge has given us some writing challenges to try. I’m trying this one. Free write using the word hope.

Here goes.

I love this quote. Hope is what keeps us going, it is the fuel the heart lives on. I made that one up myself. I use it a lot.

Cause, if we don’t have hope, then what do we have? Nothing.

And we need to have hope. We need to know things can and will get better. I know I need to feel that there is hope no matter how bad things are.

Do you?

Hope is what keeps us alive. It is the thing that allows us to go on, struggle on when we feel we cant.

I’m glad I have hope. I’m glad I mostly always see a light at the end of the dark tunnel.

No one wants to stay in that dark place of no hope. I know I don’t.

#whatif: Snowpocalypse

a snowpocalypse
That’s what we had
For the past month
The white stuff
It fell
fell hard
we were housebound
While the white snow
fell like cotton candy outside
At first we liked it
Loved it even
But then we grew fed up of it
We just wanted spring to come
and finally
spring has sprung
All the daffodils in bloom
Its so nice to see
And the sun, the sun melted away the snow
And at last
We could venture outside
Turn our face upwards
And breathe in the fresh spring air


follow your dreams…

The little girl looked up at her mom. Follow your dreams, sweetie, her mom would always tell her. Now her mom was very ill. Looking into her moms big blue eyes, her daughter was determined, I’m going to become a ballet dancer, mom, I promise, I’ll do it for you, she knew her mom always wanted to be a ballet dancer. Her mom smiled weakly. Do it for yourself, darling, only do it for yourself, nothing will make me prouder. And so she did, because she wanted nothing more than to make her mom proud of her.
