Waiting In Hope

I have a friend from Brazil. Today we were trying to explain the difference between waiting and hoping. Apparently in Portuguese there is no difference.
And why should there be? If I am waiting on the Lord, aren't I hoping in Him? I have been thinking a lot about Romans 15:13 where God is called The God of Hope. It's so easy to let our waiting be just ambling along without purpose and joy. What if it we thought about it as hoping instead?
Hmmm... what are we waiting for?
