NaBloPoMo 2014 Day 5: A Day of Anticipation

Today is an anticipatory day.

There’s a feeling in the sunshine, a flutter in my belly, a skipping to my heart.

I feel like I should be peeking around corners for presents and surprises.

It feels like I should be in my car – music blaring, singing at the top of my lungs with my husband – on my way to some amazing, fantastic fun.

I cannot help myself smiling.

It feels like Christmas morning, before the world – or at least my house – is awake: that anticipation and excitement that lives just as a quiver beneath your skin for that moment.

It’s that breath between heartbeats before breaking into a run. Or a dance.

Anticipation. Excitement. Warmth. Joy. For no good reason. It’s a good feeling.
