In those sentences : "If you don't eat,you get hungry" and " I'm sorry your mother is ill. I hope she gets better soon.
Why don't we say "you will get"/ "she will get" ?
Thanksss in advance.
With the first sentence, it's talking about a general truth and for that we use the present tense. The sentence simply means that not eating causes hunger.

I hope I win the lottery.
I hope you have a good holiday.
Note: only one "s" in "Thanks".
