JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 192 :: ice cream joy

11 Jul

I didn’t eat ice cream tonight but I watched a whole group of little kids wait in line for an ice cream cone. It was pure joy.

They were overjoyed when I gave up my table for them to sit down. They were overjoyed when their numbers were called one by one. And they were overjoyed to dig into their ice cream cones.

It made me realize that half the fun of joy is the anticipation… the waiting with pure anticipation that something amazing is about to happen. I have had my share of waiting in life, and usually, it’s for bad news. But JOY is teaching me that anticipation is the best kind of waiting.

Here’s to the joy of waiting.

More tomorrow…
