SOOO, anyone else beat their alarm clock this morning? The ten minutes of coveted “snooze” time… is what I lost this morning. Not even a shed tear or a complaint shall dust my lips for it! It’s now officially Wednesday!
As a kid, I loved school (might be why I keep going back). Wednesday meant we were close to FRIDAY! As adults, we get excited for a different type of Wednesday joy. Child-like-me knew there were less responsibility on weekends. I could hang out with friends (as much as an adolescent could ‘hang out’), I could relax, I could sleep, and IF it was the week of my birthday, I’d feel like a princess!
Why do we let go of the sheer innocence of anticipation when we grow up? I know we have bills/expenditures, responsibilities, families, and “stuff” to handle, but why not face it like a kid? Adults can become stiff and stuffy when we so easily forget our innocence.
Saturday I celebrate 29. I believe now more than ever…I appreciate children’s ability to get excited over anything! Last night at church, a small baby got excited because he could walk well! He kept walking laps back and forth, turning and smiling! During one of those reps, he walked up to my left leg and hugged my calf. ::CAN YOU SAY MELT MY HEART?!?:: That made my night!
It was the sweetness of the gesture during his victory laps that inspired this post! Find something to get excited about! Find someone to share it with…and know that it’s WEDNESDAY;)
