365/76 ~ anticipation

Today, as I am at the babys due date, I see a lot of similarities ( I use “similarities” loosely, I should probably put it in quotes) between the anticipation of Christmas, ¬†and having our baby…

Both experiences are intensely exciting; Both experiences are unscripted, you don’t know what you are going to get; And for both, depending on how “civilized” your gift¬†opening event is… it’s a big mess.

And, there’s a part of you that just wants to get the whole thing over with.

Ok, so there are elements that are not similar, like the pain of birthing a baby.

Hopefully you don’t have that kind of gift opening experience.

I do, however, hope your dreams come true this holiday season.

Merry Christmas
