Definitely not calling you out on 'hope'! We ALL need it as the seed of our planning. It just reminded me of seeing this piece today (-:
Four and a half years ago, I was presented with hope......but it has taken four and a half years of action (often excruciatingly difficult action) to bring things to fruition. And now, in 12 days, she's coming to live with me. Four and a half years........I'm glad I didn't know how long it would all take on the day I met her or I might have bowed out and continued on my downward spiral! Something told me, though.....'Hang on to this one.....no matter what.....' So I did (-:

She's very pretty - thanks for sharing.
I am happy for you, and for other of our fellow travellers that have found some reprieve, NOT to mention UNICORN level luck
such as yourself, Sham, BOC, and few others mentioned in this thread.
Now to HOPE. I firmly believe hope is the last resort of the hopeless, i.e. the magical thinking things will change.
That's NOT the context in which I used the word HOPE, Here's what I meant.
Most of us DO NOT need UNICORN level compatibilities, and satisfaction we just need GOOD ENOUGH level of functioning in our lives, relationships, as a START. One can build from there. So in this respect I have most often had "GOOD ENOUGH" connections OUTSIDE OF HOPE.
Majority of our friends here may attest HOPE itself did not bring them anything but despair.
So when I run into WORKABLE people - that's also an affirmation on myself i.e. I am not as broken as I may think some days.
Long post short - Hope is DOCUMENTED as the last evil that came out of Pandora's box, and changes little.
ACTION OTOH - now we're talking change.
Thanks for reading so far - Have a great new week y'all
