Any Moment

For the past week we have been going to bed thinking perhaps the phone will ring in the middle of the night.  We are waiting for a new little grandson to make his way into the world where we can hold him and count his fingers and toes.  Colin and Jennifer are especially ready for their new arrival.  I walked around today as though I had some secret delight.  I find myself checking my cell phone to see if I have any messages.  Today I wondered if I lived my life everyday as though some marvelous thing was about to happen, how much that would encourage me.  It would cause me to toss aside the thoughts that entangle me in favor of grabbing hold of a blessing.  We can't all be so fortunate to have a new baby arriving soon, but something good is always happening somewhere.  I think I'll turn in tonight and count my blessings, and hope the phone will ring.
