Waiting for something to happen.
I guess we all do it…
wait for the return phone call.
the e-mail. (or any e-mail!).
the next song on the radio.
the next thing we’re going to eat.
the next person we are supposed to meet with.
the next church service.
the next major life event.
the good news.
the bad news.
the next exciting or interesting thing.
to see how someone will react to what we just said.
and so on….
When really, perhaps we should be living in the moment–rejoicing in the small Grace of breathing and the consequent Grace of living. We might just be a lot happier people.
