Whether it is starting a crochet project like making a wonky single crochet sock for a new family member, or the beginning of a season of celebration, there is a bubble of anticipation that begins to expand within me and grows and grows. Living in anticipation, savoring the process of growing can be so much fun.
Our family is accumulating all sorts of traditions around the celebration of Christ's birth. While we use an advent wreath, an advent calendar, and Christmas tree to help us focus our attention on the story of Christ's gift to the world, we have let the myths of Santa working with elves in his workshop tickle our sense of delight in making or purchasing little love gifts that can be stuffed in socks to surprise each other with on Christmas morning. [Before we went shopping the other day we checked to see if we had pointy ears like elves :)]
What projects or celebrations are you anticipating?
