Two Shoes Tuesday # 7 - Hope


Welcome to Two Shoes Tuesday... a place to share what we enjoy doing most... writing! Each week I'll provide a one-word writing prompt and ask you to share a short story, poem, essay, thought, or photo relating to that topic. You can add a link to your post anytime between now and Friday.

This week's writing prompt is "HOPE".

When you've finished your post, share it with us by adding a link in the Mr. Linkey below. Please link directly to your Two Shoes Tuesday post, rather than just to your blog. Also, please provide a link on your post back to this one.

The only other request is that you read and comment on the other entries, at minimum the one before and after yours on the list.

I've made it easy to locate this post and our archives by adding a tab for Two Shoes Tuesday at the top of my home page.

Feel free to email me at jts.2000@yahoo.com with any questions, or to submit suggestions for future word prompts.

Now let's get down to business! Tell us about hope!

  5. Josie I have to admit I read Brenda's post in my email and realized that something I had posted last year was just what I needed to write here. I promised my daughter I would never let anyone forget what happened that daily somewhere her name would be mentioned along with how she died..this was just such an opportunity. Thank you for allowing Domestic Violence Awareness month have a voice here.~~Len

  7. Hi Josie ~~ This is a really good prompt. I didn't get real serious like you and some of the others did. Mine showed a love while hurting. No family violence though as I was unaware that this was the month for observing its ravaging harm.

    In my eaarly childhood we had that at our home. Then it changed, all of a sudden. We started going to church and I never saw Dad lay a hand on Mom again. Not that he wasn't still rough on me. But that wasn't heart wrenching like seeing my mom hurt.

    1. Your piece was great Jim! Papa Bear grew up in a home like that with him once needing to stop his step-father from nearly killing his mother. It is so hard on a child to have to be the defender against a parent. Would that no child would ever have to go thru these things again, or adults either! Awareness is a beginning.

  8. Just made it. Thought I was going to miss this week but I got something posted. Completely frivolous and silly.
