We had waited all day for it to arrive. Whom am I kidding? We had waited all week. All this time, we could see something great just beyond the brink... waiting for that perfect moment to light up our lives.
Isn't that how it always works?
Oh, how life could be so comfortable if it ever actually worked according to our own "ideal" plan. Think about it. No unknown. Not one hiccup in the road. We could process through each day never in danger of late night tummy bugs, recipes gone wrong, hurt feelings, unexpected expenses, car troubles, career changes or having to wait just a little bit more for something oh-so coveted. Easy breezy, right?
All that excitement that comes with anticipation... would be gone.
We would never feel the thrill of discovering something new. (Meet "squirm the worm")
Without all that unpredictable messy living, how would we ever come to know the beauty of being swept away?
