We spend our lives in anticipation.  

I'm currently anticipating the arrival of a college pal and her cute family tomorrow evening, a wedding next weekend, Christmas break, the end of the semester, and, of course, Christmas.  

Constantly looking ahead, constantly planning, constantly thinking forward. 

But sometimes. . .I just need to be.  

I need to be content with the moment. 

I need to embrace the stillness. 

I need to recognize that I won't get these moments back, and instead of waiting and hoping and anticipating, I just need to appreciate what I've been given this very second. 

It tends to put everything back into perspective.
