Recipes Of Hope

Written By Hope Wells @  Journey Into Hope 2020

 

Happy Friday

 

When I was younger, I always used to go into work on a Friday and say ‘it’s Friday and it’s great to be me’. And so today I am saying ‘it’s Friday and it’s great to be me’. Because I am grateful to be alive.

Today I had a wonderful video chat with one of my friends. We spent almost an hour just passing the time and catching up. So far I have enjoyed my Friday. And later on I am going to be joining the Zoom birthday party of a special young person who is one today. I will be celebrating.

I am happy because there are prayers that have been answered; various people I know about have miraculously recovered Others have ongoing health issues, but are doing okay. And I know of people who have recently been diagnosed, so am praying for them. And I am so overwhelmed by Captain Moore who has raised over 18 million pounds by walking up and down his garden. And overwhelmed by the growing army of medical professionals who have laid their lives down to serve others.

So today I stay at home in my fight against this virus. And I say ‘it’s Friday and it’s great to be me’. Because I want to keep upbeat for those I am isolated with. I will dress up for the Zoom party which I am looking forward to. I will go on a lovely walk, do some reading and value my friends and family.

Today’s recipe of hope is another song. It is to listen and reflect on what makes you happy. And to review whether when the pandemic is behind us, whether you want to re-emerge from the lockdown and do life differently; less frantically, more relaxed.

Love and prayers friends X

 

Journey Into Hope 2020 is a new blog which was started as an experiment. On 1st January 2020 I determined to write about hope everyday for the entire year, to see what would happen. This was prior to the pandemic. The blog offers daily recipes of hope to help create a positive day. I have found this has helped my own mental health significantly.

I currently coordinate a community project for vulnerable adults and am in the process of having a children’s book published.
