Anticipation
    Remember that old commercial: Anticipaaaaation is making me wait........well that's how I feel right now. 
I'm on the precipice of a new chapter in my life and I just want it to start.  Let's preface this with I'm not a very patient person to begin with.  I try to have more patience especially with my children.  I feel that, I almost can't descirbe it, that urge to take over and just help when they aren't doing something fast enough for my liking.  There are soooooooooo many times that I just hold back because they have to learn and I can't do it for them forever.  There is also a fine line there where if I interfere too much they will interpret that as them being inadequate.  That is usually not the case, it's just my own inner workings of  wanting to do everything F A S T and get it done. 

I think the lesson here is to just stop and smell the roses and know deep inside that life is about ready to take off at breakneck speeds and I need to enjoy the quiet stillness of now.  There will be a day when I'm so ensconced in the craziness of life and I know I will look back and say"  I wish I were bored today and lying in my hammock in the sun again."

So this is a reminder to myself to just enjoy and be still..the craziness is on the way!!

I'm so used to having a million things going on at once and with nothing going on right now I find myself a bit bored.
