Christmas: The Waiting Is Over

The waiting is over.  The waiting is truly over.

  • The clock stopped
  • The bus arrived
  • The pot is boiling
  • The movie started
  • The bill’s been paid
  • The alarm clock is buzzing
  • Godot is standing in front of you
  • The cat’s out of the bag
  • The light turned green
  • It’s been taken off “the back burner”
  • Your thumbs are now free
  • The curtain’s rising
  • I found a fourth
  • The coin’s been tossed
  • Opportunity has knocked
  • The ship has docked
  • The ice has melted
  • Your time has come
  • The mailman is here
  • The gate’s closing
  • The child made curfew
  • The sun has set
  • It’s 5 o’clock somewhere
  • The check’s arrived

The waiting is truly over.  It’s time.  Time for…

  • Overdue forgiveness toward a friend
  • Overdue forgiveness toward yourself
  • That unsaid word of gratitude
  • That unwritten “thank you” note
  • An emptying of grudges
  • A release of comparisons
  • That awkward confrontation
  • That unread book
  • That dreamt trip never taken
  • That excellence in work you promised yourself yesterday
  • Release of silly, nonproductive thoughts
  • Fulfilling a promise you’ve made
  • The peace and contentment you expect tomorrow

The baby’s been born.  It is time.
