Anticipation…

I choose the table cloth, polish the silver and wipe the crystal glasses until they shine. I light the candles and arrange the appetizers in a tempting display. I listen for a knock on the door.

Some day, soon, visitors with parcels of food, wine, games, and gifts will arrive cloaked in the enchantment of their laughter and love. Soon…but alas, not today. Not this year.

Patience…gratitude…peace…contentment…joy. All is well, even now.

  1. What a delightful post of memories of joyous moments. We drawing from our memories a lot during this time with moments of sorrow, but most of the time we basked in the joy of what we have and the new memories we are making.
