Here we sit. Hovering in that tangible phase of ...the waiting. This baby is due on Sunday (Feb.5th) but we all know how torturous it is to pin our hopes on that day actually delivering.
Like most great things in life worth waiting for ... this forces my growth. No, not just in the literal sense of 'this gut better not get any bigger'!
I see my need for growth in patience... when my daughter's energy level seems inversely proportional to my own exhaustion.
I need to grow in playfulness - to recapture that childlike wonder for so many beautiful moments one could discover each day.
I desire to grow in being present. To accept with gratitude the moment that God has blessed me with... instead of worrying about 'the tomorrows' or getting distracted by the 'to-do-lists'.
So here we are... in the waiting... and it is here, that we grow.
