Letters To My Daughter - Hope

To My Daughter,

I want to show you that I have hope, because I want you to know what it is like to have hope amidst darkness.

I want to show you that it is okay to be hopeful, and that being hopeful nearly always results in a positive outcome.  I want to show you how to hope so that you will naturally have hope as your default mode of operation, instead of worry. The past few weeks we have been in a happy little bubble of hope, and it is my goal that you will be able to look back on this time as an adult, and remember that hope, peace, faith and love were at the center of this experience. We aren’t keeping you 100% completely sheltered, you know that things are quite a bit different in our lives right now. You know that there is a virus, and we have encouraged you to ask questions.
