I've been thinking lately about waiting and how all through our lives we are presented with opportunities to do just that - wait. As a child, it may have been waiting for Christmas morning or a birthday party. As a teenager, it was waiting for that special someone to call (since girls didn't telephone boys back in my day) or it could have been waiting to graduate high school. Waiting for marriage, a baby's birth, and so on. You get the picture.
It seems our lives are intertwined with waiting for something to happen - always eager for that next life event, that next adventure. For instance, I'm so eager to tell you about a recent event in my life that I'm not sure what to say next. So I'll just have to, well, wait!
