I Hope – Part 1

I hope:

  • That the trauma monsters stop chasing us.
  • That Hope is freed from her fears of the past.
  • That we are freed from depression.
  • That our hot tempers cool with time.
  • That our patience grows.
  • That Hope grows up to be confident, self-assured and well adjusted.
  • That the next round of music lessons aren’t audibly painful.
  • That Hope grows to like some kind of physical activity.
  • That one day I won’t be shocked by all the movies that have adoption sub-themes.
  • That I will feel caught up with work, life and parenting one day.
  • That bio-aunt stops sending me chain emails…boundaries, people, boundaries. #icant #noreally #icant
  • I’ll get back to hitting happy hour with some some frequency in the next 5 years.
  • That I’ll be ready for another fur baby next year sometime.
  • That I can pull off a trip abroad next spring for us.
  • That one day I won’t have to ask if the bed has been made or the room has been tidied.
  • That one day she won’t be afraid of so many things.
  • That one day I’ll have a husband.
  • That I am able to model healthy relationships for Hope.
  • That her math skills will improve.
  • That we continue to have therapeutic breakthroughs.
  • That I won’t have to hide my favorite food forever.
  • That I find a spirit of sharing.
  • That my faith continues to grow.
  • That I can meet my first weight loss goal by year’s end.
