SooperDad tagged me the other day to write about hope. Here is what he has to say about it: http://sooperdad.blogspot.com/?zx=aabfe9353ff8ee59
And all though the relay is officially over, I wanted to participate. And it has been hard.
I have started writing this blog post about 839 times… or close to it. What can I say about hope?
Simply and most truthfully:
Hope is the only reason I get out of bed, or am alive.
Many of you already know my story, but for those of you who do not the last two years of my life have looked like this: Father-in-law had a horrific stroke, Husband and I divorced, I dated a psychopath (that I later put in prison), my house got foreclosed, I lost my job, and my car. Yep… that about sums ALL of that up… so believe me when I say hope is the only reason I have to even keep trying to put all of this life back together.
With hope I have a chance… with hope we all do.
And now I would like to pass this torch (so-to-speak) to my dear friend The Nitty Gritty Mommy.
