They say that all good things come in their appropriate time. Why then do I get myself so worked up in anticipation of the really good stuff. I feel like I did when I was a kid at Christmas time. I'd wake up 20 times in the night praying for it to be Christmas morning. By 6AM I was up and making as much noise as I could to get my parents to wake up. Nevermind that they had been up all night preparing for the Christmas Day activities. It was all about me back then. And damned if it doesn't look that way right now. The butterflies have taken over. I need to settle down and be patient. I haven't been this excited in years. It's great and aweful all at the same time. I guess in some ways I'll never grow up.

Everything fully enjoyed passes quickly, leaving the desire for more. As a child, I couldn't appreciate the value of the gifts I received. I hadn't worked for them. I hadn't lived enough to experience different kinds of poverty. Unlike in the Christmases of my childhood, I've learned to enjoy the gifts for as long as it is possible.
