Hi, and thank you for joining me for another spiritually uplifting episode of Hope Inside You.

I'm your hostess, Hope Matthews.

Today, I'd like to ask everyone a few questions.

Are you awakened?

Are you enlightened?

Do you truly feel happy?

If you could take happiness and ball it up with water, would you drink it?

Do you feel the power of enlightenment?

You know, when I was a little girl, I grew up across the street in this field of wild flowers.

In the spring time, when these flowers have bloom, I would get lost for hours.

Our mind can kinda be like the field of wild flowers, can it?

We can get lost sometimes, don't we?

It's easy.

I want you to close your eyes for a moment.

Imagine you're in the field of wild flowers.

Then guess what.

Open your eyes.

You're not alone.

Take my hand.

(cuckoo bird calling)

(mellow piano music)

Oh, I didn't hear you come in.

How was your day?

I've been better.

Anything you wanna talk about?


You can tell me anything, you know.

Yeah, I know.

I know.

[Narrator From TV] As the teacher begin the instruction in reading, she knows that experience is an understanding must precede the printed word and its comprehension.

She recognizes the action before the word, the idea or reading readiness then reading.

Before the worthy idea, simply means that the child must first gain understandings about real things.

Later, the child can associate appropriate understandings with the words or phrases that stand before them.

The teacher explains this process as we see, we learn.

We read.

[Johnny] Dad.

[Dad] Yes?

[Johnny] Where do babies come from anyhow?

[Dad] Why, the mothers bring them into the world.

[Johnny] By why do mothers bring them?

[Dad] Johnny, by the grace of heaven, mothers are the only ones who know how to bring babies into world.

[Man] That's right dad.

Mothers do bring babies into the world.

[Johnny] Daddy.

[Dad] Yes?

[Johnny] Why do babies have fathers?

[Dad] There wouldn't be any babies without fathers.

[Johnny] But why?

[Man] Well, your child is inquisitive.

[Narrator From TV] This research study explains how film experiences may help students learn increased amount of new information which is remembered longer and which therefore may be applied efficiently to problem solving situations as pupils progress from lower to higher grade.

[Narrator From TV] This then is the story of reproduction.

A story which any parent should fully understand.

Not only to ensure the arrival of a healthy child but also...

[Narrator From TV] We think of using new communications devices.

We have overloaded teacher and overloaded curricula.

[Narrator From TV] Little more than the process of matching new experience with appropriate words.

Hi, and welcome back for another episode of Hope Inside you.

I'm Hope Matthews.

You know, not too long ago, I somehow attracted and activated some unwanted vibrations to my life.

But the most important part is being to able recognize that.

Being able to put your fingers on the pulse of life.

The answer is not to try, let go.

No more struggle.

You don't have to struggle to succeed.

Claim the benefits of the universe.

Look here.

There's no scars on my wrist.

I'm at one with life.

And you wanna know what?

I'm gonna bring you there with me, aren't I?

Yes, yes I am.

(thunder crashing)


[John] Please forgive me.

I know you can hear me.

Where do I know you from?

Don't I know you?

Do you hear that dog?


That's his name, Tucker.

Where do I know you from?


(chaotic disoriented music) (voice being drowned out)

(clock ticking)

(eerie ambient music)

(knocking on door)

Ma, did you hear me knocking?

See, you decided to sell the house, huh.

One way, you're gonna tell me about this, Ma.

Ma, I was just getting washed up.

I'm gonna head on home now.

Today, I'd like to talk with everyone about fear.

How to fight it and how to let it go.

First, I'd like to start with this story.

Now this story, it took me many, many years to understand.

I don't know if I truly understand the meaning of it, still.

Hopefully you'll figure it out today.

There once was lion who was searching the jungle for food.

He searched for miles and miles and was beginning to go hungry.

Then he came across a dear, who was already caught in a trap.

The lion thought, if there was a way he could get inside the trap, he would have a much needed meal.

So the lion did.

He broke into the trap and ate the dear.

When the lion tried to leave, he realized he was now also trapped.

The lion waited there for several days.

Then one day, a man approached the lion.

(doorknob clicks)

(light suspenseful music)


I found this doll out in your yard, Ma.

I just want you to know, I'm not mad at you.

I know it's too much for you to handle anymore.

Well, anyway.

I just want you to know that I'm here for you no matter what.

I still think you could've picked a better realtor than my brother though.

(eerie ambient music)

(thunder rumbling)

(steady high pitched music)

(gunshot bangs)

(heavy piano music)

(crow cawing)

(mellow piano music)

I thought that I might find you here.

You really shouldn't be walking around by yourself.

(crow cawing)

Alright, I'll check on you tomorrow, Ma.

Hello, and thank you for joining me for another episode of Hope Inside You.

I'm Hope Matthews.

Today, I'd like to do something a little different.

I don't usually have guest on my show.

By today is a very special occasion.

Anne Miller from Norwood County will be joining us today.

Well, come on in.

Yes you, come on.

(mellow uplifting music)

(crowd applauding and cheering)

Please, please, have a seat.

Hi, thank you so much for coming to the show today.


So I hear that you've been watching my show for a while now.


I received your letter your letter the other day and I feel that you could have some hope in your life.

Would you like that?


Everybody needs a little hope in their lives, sometimes, Anne.

Please, take my hand.

I can see inside you're soul right now.

Do you feel that?


That's hope inside of you.

Can you feel that?

[Anne] Yes.

(Anne coughing)


Mom, is everything okay?

[Sarah] She's okay.

She fell last night and dislocated her knee.

[Nick] Who are you?

I'm Sarah.

I'm the RN who'll be staying with Anne till she recovers.

Well, I check on her everyday.

I'm sure can handle it.

I'm sorry, that's a requirement.

How long will you be here?

Well, it depends on Anne's recovery, sir.

Okay Anne, we need to take your pain medication.

I'll be right back.

What are you looking for?

A glass.

They're in here.

How long have you been doing this?

Pouring water?

No, nursing.

Look, I'm sorry.

I didn't catch your name.

It's Nick, I'm Anne's son.

I live next door.

Nick, this is my job, and I take it very seriously.

You don't have to worry about anything.

Listen, there's some things you need to know about Anne.

She's not well anymore.

And she doesn't like visitors.

Sir, listen.

No, you listen.

My father killed himself in this house.

Right there in that bedroom.

Anne never goes in there anymore and she's never spoken a word since.

Nick, please try to understand something.

I do this for a living.

There isn't anything I haven't seen.

Now please, why don't you going home and let Anne get some rest?

She's had a very long night.

There you go, Anne.

Oh, I love your dolls.

(eerie ambient music)




(eerie ambient music)

(knocking on door)

Hey Ma, I see you took the for sale sign down.

What happened?

She's fine, she's fine.

She's had a little cooking accident.

Ma, are you okay?

She's just fine.

I've already taken care of it.

[Nick] Ma, tell me if you're okay.


Everything's fine.

(crickets chirping)

(brooding ambient music)

Anne is sleeping.


She's on a lot of pain medication.

It's completely normal.

Well, I'd like to check on her if you don't mind.

[Sarah] Please be quiet.

She needs her rest.

I'll be back to check on her tomorrow.

(eerie ambient music)

(knocking on door)

He's here again.

You can't keep doing this.


Look, I appreciate you doing the yard work and I'm very sorry for what happened but you can't just keep coming here like this.

What are you talking about?

Let me in to see my mom.

Your mom is not here.

[Nick] Ma!


[Sarah] I keep telling you over and over but you keep coming back here.

What the hell are you talking about?


Your mom is not here anymore.

Will you please leave?

What the hell is he doing here?

I called him.

Wat are you doing here?

Nick, just come outside with me so we can talk.

Answer me.

What the fuck is going on?

Sarah lives here now.

I sold her the house a few weeks ago.

What are you talking about?

Where's mom?

Mom's gone, Nick.

She's been gone for weeks.


Nick, Mom's dead.



Just come outside with me so we can talk.

Nick, just come outside with me.

Everything's gonna be okay.

[Nick] No.
