Hope...

Hope is the biggest energizer & I happened to notice the beauty of hope when I met this tiny, little 4-year old girl in my neighborhood. The girl lives away from her mother as her mom is studying medicine in the US. It is really sad and touching to see how badly the little one misses her mother and how her room is filled with pictures of her mother instead of dolls and teddies.

The girl misses her mother so much that she is learning how to write - just to communicate with her mother. She talks to her mother on the phone daily. But she hopes that that the written form of communication will help convince her mother to come back.

The little 1 thinks that it was a written letter (the admission offer letter) that made her mom go to US and so a comeback-request letter written by her will make her mom back soon. Hence she is eagerly learning alphabets and words when most kids avoid all this at this age. It's amazing to see how her faith keeps her going.


On the same lines all that I have is also just a ray of hope... Yes I am well past my teen age but pimples are still one of my life’s biggest problem.. Grrr... But I am still hopeful that I’ll have a flawless skin 1 day... some day :D :D

Touching story.

The girl is not merely hoping, but actively pursuing a line of action to realize her hope.

Whats your line of action? :P

The little girl's hope is as innocent as it gets.

Nice read, although, hope brings in some optimism which could be dangerous.
