!Ojala'! I hope to God that...you think this is fun...
I have just learned in Spanish class of this wonderful Spanish word, "Ojala'."
It means, "I hope to God that..." and it is followed by a verb in the subjunctive form.
The subjunctive verb form is a little tricky for lots of people, so it should be fun to practice it.
Please join me in posting examples of what you hope to God will happen in your life, with verbs going through in alphabetical order, remembering the subjunctive verb form. I'll start with an "A" verb, "adorar," "to adore."
If you need a little brush up on the subjunctive, go to this link: link text and you'll be a subjunctive wizard in no time.
And, please, think of posting a picture with your statement. It's easy and it helps those of us who are visual learners! Thanks!
!Ojala' que mi marido me adore para el resto de mi vida!

¡Ojalá que puedan comprender mi español!
I hope they can understand my Spanish!
Ojala que aprenda español
My first Ojala that I can remember from high school (and that was a long time ago).
Ojala que te mejores pronto.
I hope you get better soon.
Ojala que vaya encontrarme con una chica especial este año
= I hope to God* that I will meet a Special Girl this year
- God as in Jesus* for me (not Allah since the origin of the word is Arabic)
Corregid mi Español este año, por favor
Okay, just forget the alphabetical order of the verbs and jump in with the thing you most hope for...
