The promise of things to come! This morning I noticed this rose bud reaching toward the sky. Soon it will start to show color, and then burst into a red blaze of color. Looking forward is half the pleasure. The anticipation for the future should be enjoyed. Even if things don't work out just as I had planned, no one can take the pleasure of expectation from me. I am looking forward to spring, when the desert will suddenly throw on its party dress and dance in the breeze, if only for a little while. I am looking forward to getting a car. How I will enjoy being able to go whenever the mood strikes me! I am looking forward to my daughter's marriage this summer, hoping that this new beginning will bring her happiness. I am looking forward to the vacation in Hawaii and the excitement to explore all its exotic places. I am even looking forward to getting my dishes done. I enjoy a sparkling sink. So even the little things bring enjoyment, and I look forward to doing them.
