Hope In Practice

Today I was wondering what to write about and then about 10 minutes ago there was a knock on the door and a box arrived and in it were many lovely treats. This has lifted my spirits and made my day. Yesterday I was treated to lovely cinnamon buns. This again lifted my spirits.

We all need things to lift us and this has lifted me. I write this to illustrate how people’s thoughtfulness impacts on us. I have had a challenging few days this last week and my hope reservoir is very depleted being honest. And this has refilled the tank.

Small and thoughtful gestures make an enormous difference. At this point I want to offer my condolences to those in India affected by the aircrash today in Kerala. You are very much in my thoughts at this time. I am so saddened by this tragedy.

Today’s recipe of hope is to reach out our hands to those whose hope reservoirs are low. To show we care. We are not allowed to hug one another in the UK, but we can give a hug in many other ways and touch each other through acts of kindness.

Let us raise one another’s hopes in this world where there is so much tragedy X

I am a qualified social worker and run a community project for vulnerable adults. I am passionate about social justice. I feel that every life matters. No-one is insignificant or invaluable. I also believe that everyone has the power to change, although some may not wish to. Essentially, I believe in hope. Hope Wells is my writing name.
