making ice).
Sometimes hope is holding a tiny newborn baby.
Sometimes hope is checking the tin mailbox posted on the back gate.
Sometimes hope is making gluten-free cookies from a box.
Sometimes hope is having a sink without dirty dishes.
Sometimes hope is waking up before your alarm clock and wanting to wake up.
Sometimes hope is watching a football victory with friends when you don't usually get excited about football.
Sometimes hope is reading required reading side-by-side with a friend.
Sometimes hope is surrendering to what you don't understand.
Sometimes hope is letting go of expectations of a place or a situation.
Sometimes hope is a box of root vegetables.
