Gearing Up For Something

The colors! The golden light! The smell of candy in the air! Perhaps that's just at my house...
But you all know what I'm talking about, right? When chocolate and hard candy spend quality time together and create this intoxicating fragrance that can only be described as Halloween Candy!
It's enough to keep me in a good mood all month long.
And then there's this other thing that is keeping me up all night. And when it's time to share, you know I'll be sharing.
But right now I'm so excited about creativity. When I look outside I am overcome with ideas and inspiration. Add music to that equation and my head is spinning!

And in other good news Reader fan #1 is about to embark on an adventure of her own! Eighteen months of adventures! Go Reader fan GO! So excited for you!

So the other day when I was out riding around with the kids my daughter heard a song on the radio and when it ended she said, "Play it again, Momma!"
We don't listen to the radio that much. Does anyone anymore? And so I had to explain that I couldn't just play it again, we'd have to wait for it to come on again. (I don't have this song on my iPod)
This was not a concept she could grasp.
"No, Momma," she said. "Just put the song on again."
Huh. How nice this new world of technology must be for the young. To never have to wait for anything. If they want to watch their favorite show they find it on the DVR. If they want to listen to their favorite song over and over again, they simply press a button.

Honestly, I'm not the most patient person in the world, but I have a new appreciation for waiting.
You know that old expression, good things come to those who wait. I hate that expression. Can't tell you how many times I've heard it. Never has it helped.
But if we didn't have to wait would we truly appreciate anything?

Ahhh... So go take a deep breath of Halloween candy and be happy that we only have to wait three more days before it's Halloween!!


  1. Reader fan #2 says, (at least I think I am reader fan #2)I think Halloween candy is over rated. It is the same old stuff, just different packaging. I don't like how they try and fool us into thinking it is better because of the time of year and the orange and brown and gold wrapper. Other than that, I agree with your blog. Patience is definitely a virtue few have these days. Go Shari go!!
