What is hope?

My late husband, Mick, died from brain cancer three and a half years after he was diagnosed.

Although the initial prognosis was bleak:

Hope gave us the strength, the determination and the will to enjoy each moment.

Hope sustained us. It gave us the courage to continue on each day. To live and to love.

After Mick died, my hope did not falter.

I hoped that despite our immense loss and sadness, my children and I would still live a rich life full of love and laughter.

Hope is essential. It keeps us embracing life.


What is Hope – by Vineet Bansal

What hope means

Hope is bright shining light which keeps darkness at the bay
Hope is a gentle cold breeze on a hot summer day

Hope is to remain positive when the going gets tough
Hope is seeking more when others think you have had enough

What hope means

Hope is dreaming of tomorrow
Hope is simmering under sorrow

Hope is sparkles with tears in our eyes
Hope is a beautiful thing and beautiful things never die

What hope means

Hope is as light as a feather
Hope keeps all of us together

Hope is ubiquitous and free of cost
hope is the last thing ever lost …
