I am a writer and I love words. I am fascinated by them, as well as sentence structure. Well, today I asked people to share their favorite word. I remember hearing mine about 20 years ago while watching a television show. I don’t remember what t.v. program it was, but there was a woman the police were looking for to help solve a mystery. Her name was Esperanza. They said it meant “hope” in Spanish. Esperanza became my favorite word then and there!
I actually have 2 more words that I love. They are "serendipity" and "estrella," the latter of which means "star" in Spanish.
But, still ‘esperanza” is my favorite. I love the sound of the word. That is what caught my ear. It is like music. I think it’s the prettiest word I have ever heard. I hope that your “esperanza” grows stronger every day!

Oh, one more thing that you might find interesting: I remember hearing this several years ago on the radio and that was that families have words that are unique to their own families....Often it is a word that a child says when they are young and the family "adopts" the word (such as in Nancy's post.) It's very interesting, don't you think? On Monday, I will have a funny story to share with you about that.
