This new word I’ve learned has really resonated with me. It is used most often at the beginning of sentences as an interjection meaning “to be hopeful” or “God-willing”. It is also, actually, an Arabic word that the Spaniards adopted into their own language.
I’ve gravitated towards this words and grin a little each time I hear it because of it’s positivity and hopefulness.
I still think every day how fortunate I am to be here in Madrid. And the feeling of excitement and joy every time I wake up has not gone away.
Ojalá, it never does.
