Anticipation

If nothing ever changed, there’d be no butterflies.  ~Author Unknown

ImageWell – today is the day.  We are now just counting down the hours.  Are we ready??  No idea!  I suppose we are as ready as we’ll ever be.  As I type this… the kids’ plane looks like it has just reached North America and in a couple of hours they will be landing in Newark, NJ.  At 4:00 this afternoon we will meet them at the gate in Dulles.  And then… the fun begins!

This past week I’ve been contemplating time by “the next time we go ____, the kids will be here” or “the next time it is Monday we’ll be at the beach with the kids”… etc. etc. etc.  And it occurred to me that I used to do this when we were anticipating a new baby.  And, as different as this is… I suppose it is also very similar.

Today the footprint of our family will change once again.
