Haven’t you ever awakened and had a ‘funny’ feeling that something was brewing, something was ‘in the air’ …something was about to happen that would be quite different…but you didn’t know exactly what it was?
In my case, however, I do happen to know and also when it will happen…piqued anyone’s curiosity? It wasn’t until I was watching Mary Poppins with the grandchildren (Julie Andrews original) that certain scenes reminded me of a great adventure I have been on for quite awhile….and Mary is right when she tells the children….
Anticipation is… “When I think something nice is going to happen I seem to fly right up on the wings of anticipation; and then the first thing I realize I drop down to earth with a thud. But really, Marilla, the flying part is so glorious as long as it lasts…it’s like soaring through a sunset. I think it almost pays for the thud.”
During these rather challenging, yet still monotonous days we face…anticipation is the great ice-breaker…the blip in a series of long straight lines. Even if a blip is somewhat ambiguous…it still can provide a welcome change in our daily routines.
So for today and until tomorrow…that is all I will say.
But I did talk with Winnie the Pooh… since he’s been on my adventure with me… he added his perspective on anticipation …part of the reason he always concludes each post with….
