If then, hope is the foundation of passion and purpose, what is hope? The first element is the affirmation that the future is positive and good. For some, this is a difficult aspect of hope. Due to the loss of loved ones to death or estrangement, the future doesn’t look bright. For others, the irremediable consequences of choices or bad experiences make the future gloomy. Yet when we find someone else who needs us and when we recognize how precious life is, hope returns. If there are those who do not value us, there are those who do, or who will, or who can.

Dear Annie:

I am married to a man with two children from a previous marriage. They are adults. My husband is 15 years my senior, and he married early the first time, so long story short, his children are only four and six years younger than I am. The problem is with his daughter.

Just look at this beauty!  I stumbled upon this bevy of blooming flowers on a recent walk through a landscaped area in the Woodlands.  The guy watering the area said that these flowers just keep on producing all summer long and don’t really require much care at all.  That sounds like my kind of plant.

Dear Annie:

My granddaughter, “Melanie,” thinks that she has a half-sister 24 years younger.

Melanie believes that her father, long divorced from her mother, was asked by his former unattached girlfriend with whom he remained friendly, to “help” her have a child before it becomes biologically too late.
