H is for Home and Hope

There are so many good “H” words, but at the same time, too many!  None of them blew my skirt up with the “I have to write about this” moment.  Most of the time, I just browse around until the proverbial light comes on and I say, “Oh, that’s the one.”  In fact, in case you can’t tell, that’s actually what I’m doing now.  No matter what the title says now that you’re reading this post… the truth is that as of this moment, I have no idea what my topic is going to be.

Happiness?  Hygiene?  Hate?  Hippos?  I asked my Facebook friends for help (hey, that’s an “H” word!) and they came up with hair and hymens.  Seriously.

When in doubt, keep it simple.  I went with Home and Hope because they’re two of the most important words in existence.  In my opinion, it’s hard to live without either.  Some people have a talent for “home.”  That is, no matter where they find themselves, they can make it home.  Some people need a building to be home.  Others a person.  Some, just an idea.  For me, I need my books, my babies, and my laptop in order to be at home anywhere.  Otherwise, I’m just passing time.

It’s hard to live without hope.  Without hope, life is a never-ending series of hardships.  With hope, it can always get better.  It’s what keeps us going to casinos, and passing on stupid chain mails because who really believes that if they share that photo, they’re going to get money in 4 days?!?

Oh, sorry.  I think I got off topic for a second.  In any case, hope and home are important.  My wish for all of you is that you have something to call home and something to hope for.

  1. I remember watching Shawshank Redemption and Tim Robbin’s character had so much hope where Morgan Freeman’s character thought hope was dangerous.

    Sometimes, hope is all that gets us through.

    Great post, Doree.
