Today I am giddy with excitement. My little sister is due to have a baby today. It is not coming of course – she didn’t get that memo. 😉
I am all a flutter just thinking about another little one running around. The months ahead of growing and being adorable. The miraclulous touch of God that is in each of us at our birth.
Imagine how intoxicating it would be to live with this level of anticipation all the time. The freaky high you get just by waiting and hoping, and the excitement of life!
We have this sort of butterflies in your gut feeling when we get the call after a job interview, get a message after that first date, or the months of waiting for a publisher to call us and say “You’re book is going to be put into print!”
I feel like that today. Like the ladies in that commercial from a decade, or so, back. Leaning on the glass doors to their favorite store saying, “Open, Open, Open.”
My anticipation for life and for my new niece are bubbling over and I just don’t know what to do about it! So, while I am handicapped with this butterfly feeling know this.
It’s so awesome! People who are blase and don’t allow things to excite them, hey, Dude! You are missing out! Wake up! (as I elbow you in the ribs) Let the sun shine on your being! Let God work miracles in your life! Dance in the rain and jump in mud puddles!
Till tomorrow friends…here’s to hoping that I will have a niece by the end of the day!!!! EEK!
