At Last

School is almost over.Photo 125


The anticipation surrounding this final last day of school is filled with dreams of lazy mornings, sticky ice cream cones, wildflowers and wildlife popping out from a long winter sleep. Filled with hot days (hopefully), cool evenings, and the most perfect blue sky you can imagine.

And this anticipation is much the same as it will be in just two short months as another year of school begins. Filled with new pencils and notebooks, friends, the sounds of voices on the playground, the smell of glue and cedar chips from the class pet.

I can’t wait for this summer, and I can’t wait for next fall. I can’t wait for my daughter’s birthday in a few weeks, or my son’s birthday in a month. I can’t wait to go to the beach. I can’t wait to celebrate eight years with my husband. I can’t wait to finish revising my book. I can’t wait to have a book published, and I can’t wait to have another.

All of this anticipation can sometimes keep us from living in the moment. But it also makes our hearts thump quick in our chests, brings a smile of hope to our face, and allows us to dream about the surprises along the way.

Those dreams may or may not come true in the end, but it doesn’t really matter.

Because it’s the dreaming and the anticipating that makes each live-in-the-moment second all worthwhile.
