It can cause blutterflies to take flight in our stomachs.
Anticipation prepares us to be awed.
It is easy to anticipate with an eager and expectant heart the great events in our lives.
The birth of a child. A new destination. A career change. Opening night at a show.
But how often to we anticipate with 'finger-on-lips' and eyes agog,
the small, ordinary but absolutely breath-taking daily events in our lives?
Consider a sun rise .. slow, rhythmical, inspiring.
Listen to the deep throated song of the tui, feasting on the camellia tree.
Fee lthe breath you just took ... enlivening, renewing, refreshing.
Today may we experience a delightful anticipation of everyday events
with new eyes and a receptive heart.
