The hope we place on you is an unfair burden.
Don’t give up on us yet.
Many of us are still trying.
It feels like we should be their hope. Their beacons. Their models.
Hopebi as a
Hope as a burden, I’ve never thought of I that way, but it’s so

😉 to fat fingers every where 🙂
It’s not the hope we have that is a burden, but the hope we put upon others that I think can be a burden. It just occurred to me while thinking about the mess this world is in (parts of it).
Some days just taking that first step is a burden, Colleen. Hope is seldom a burden, but the loss of hope gets pretty heavy!
Hi Angie 🙂
Well, I don’t think the hope we have or feel is a burden. What I reference here, is the hope we ‘put’ on others, to fix things we have mucked up. I’ve often heard comments or songs that children are our hope. And I wonder how we can burden them instead of “us” being their hope.
That makes more sense, Colleen. I always hoped my children would have a better world to live in, but that one hasn’t come true for us. I have never pinned my hopes on them because it just wouldn’t be fair..I want them to live their own hopes and dreams.
Well said Angie. ❤
Thank you. 🙂
hope can be heavy at times, but it can also help us float –
It sure can. To be hopeless is undeniably crushing. Here, I reference the expectations we place on the children…. in poetic thoughts….
I think the children who see the struggles and the hopes attached…they grow a spirit that steps up when called…that’s my hope for the embodiment of our lives.
I agree. Hope is beautiful and necessary. It’s breath to our souls.
Wise. And true.
Thank you Paulette. 🙂
Your feeling feels about right to me, Colleen.
Thank you Russ.

Love it!!!! I would love to have this in my classroom!!! Or a gift for a parent. Hallmark or something 🙂
Thank you Charlene!!!! What a compliment!!!!
Hope and expectations can have their benefits. I think by passing on our hopes (and dreams) we can allow those coming after us to feel they still have possibilities.
Something I tell my grandies: “Never give up hope. . .”
We certainly need our hope Robin. 🙂
