SoCS: I hope

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “hope.” Use it any way you’d like. 

Hope. That’s a good one. My hopes for today are pretty mundane. I’ve had hopes dashed in my life too many times to aim high. There are those who claim if you think positively then your hopes will come true. If they don’t, then the fault lies with how you are thinking. I think that’s a lot of hog wash. I’ve lived long enough to see some horrible people have everything go right in life for them and some really good people have hardships through no fault of their own.

So I am hoping for a cool and cloudy weekend that doesn’t rain. I’m putting Thompson’s water seal on my deck. Its best not to do it in the sun or when its hot and 48 hours before rain. That is not easy these days: its either hot and sunny or raining.

I hope that I have more to hope for in the future. I don’t want to set the bar too high and be disappointed.

I hope I stay healthy enough to keep living here and able to do what needs to be done. When I look at it that way I feel lucky that I can waterproof my deck today. Maybe if I’m really feeling good I can mow some lawn. I hope so.

short and sweet; I hope to get out there early before the sun hits the deck.

One thought on “SoCS: I hope

  1. I can also understand about not wanting to set the bar too high and be disappointed. My theory is that it takes more than hope for hopes to come true, but a little hope seems to feel better.
