A few months ago I placed the adorable FlyLady sticker that came with my calendar on my refrigerator to serve as a reminder to keep up with my routines. My DD who wasn’t quite two at the time noticed it as I was holding her one day. She looked at it and started grinning and pointing at it.
She said, “Mommie, look it’s Hope!!” I said, what did you say? And she said “it’s Hope, Hope right there” in her precious baby talk.
This was the first time that I have ever heard her say that word. FlyLady, I have never ever mentioned you to her and certainly have never associated you with the word hope , and we also do not know anyone by that name. I have no idea where my DD came up with that but just yesterday she pointed the sticker out again and said it’s Hope.
At the time, I thought that was so fitting for you. You do give us all hope in so many ways. I have no idea why or how my daughter is convinced you are Hope, but I think that she is right! After reading your Morning Musing about One More Day of Hope that you send out July 4th I had to share this story with you.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all that you do.
FlyLady here: I am in purple puddles! Give her a hug from me. Your shiny sink is what give you hope. I love you all!
