“Let’s think of something to do while we’re waiting.” – Fred Rogers
Morgan is all about putting events on her calendar. Her enthusiasm is contagious as she talks about every detail she’s looking forward to. However, there can be a fine line between expectation and obsession. Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is my daughter’s ever present companion. I have seen it steal her joy on many occasions. Sometimes it will have her so focused on a future event that she’s unable to see the fun that’s right in front of her.
Any of us can get so caught up in tomorrow’s possibilities that we miss the sweet simple pleasures of the here and now. In my ongoing quest to help Morgan learn how to wait with joy, I’ve been given an unexpected gift. Whether it’s learning to draw our favorite characters, watering a flower to help it grow, testing out a new recipe, or watching a fire burn under the stars, I’ve found there are countless wonderful things to enjoy “while we’re waiting”. Once again, I am thankful for Mr. Rogers and his words of wisdom. 😉
