In the example I gave, I said the following:

“…the weather is amazing and I hope it stays that way. Also, I hope that you have a wonderful weekend…”

I used hope because I wanted a certain thing to happen. I wanted the weather to stay nice, and I wanted those watching the video to have a wonderful weekend. Here are three more examples:

  • I hope you can make it next week”
  • “I hope that you have good weather.”
  • “I hope to finish this soon.”

In the first two examples, I was talking about someone else. The structure is: I hope + (that) + you have/can/do etc. Using that is optional in most cases.

In the last example, I was talking about myself, and the structure is: I hope + to finish/have/do etc in most cases. However, it does depend on the verb, for example, “I hope I can finish this later.”
