givemehope GivesMeHope – When I entered into the GiveMeHope website, it reminded me of Fmylife, ItMadeMyDay and MyLifeIsAverage. Out of curiosity I checked out their about us to see if it was somehow connected to one of these sites. Guess what? Turns out “ was founded in May 2009 in response to the popular site, (FML). On FML, people share stories explaining how their day was completely ruined, we love FML, but FML can be a downer…. That’s why we created GMH is where people share with the world their most hopeful, uplifting moments and allow others to draw strength from their experiences.”

Only time will tell if GiveMeHope will be as successful as Fmylife. In the meantime, here’s my favorite hope: “Today when I was working an adorable older couple came through my line. When I asked if they had found everything they needed, the woman looked at her husband and said ‘I found everything I needed 43 years ago.'”
