Expect – Five Minute Friday

Five Minute Friday is a 5 minute free write where you just follow the flow of your thoughts. Sometimes it is a ramble; sometimes it is not. It is always a fun writing time. Join in!


GO –


That word is loaded with meaning, isn’t it? It is full of assumption, plans, wants, needs, desires. It is full of human emotion. It is full of hope and disappointment. It is full of plans and cancellations. It is loaded.

For us, as the weekend of dance recital has now arrived, expect is definitely loaded.

I expect:

  • lots of excitement
  • lots of glittery and shine
  • lots of hope
  • lots of fun
  • lots of joy
  • lots of movement
  • lots of tired
  • lots of driving
  • lots of showtime

And I expect to enjoy it all. Even the mundane tasks like waiting backstage and driving to and from the recital hall. The girls expect lots of stuff from this weekend and I am certain that none of us will be disappointed.

That is one of the good things about having a lot of expectations. There are lots of ways to have them met and the missing out on one or two is not the crushing thing it is if you only have one thing you expect.

What a simple way that we can see God’s blessings providence. The excitement of something we expect. Isn’t God good?

At Home.

    Love, love how you shared so many variations of exception, and “missing out on one or two” is not the crushing thing. Such wise words. You need to tweet.

    Yes! When you expect lots of driving and lots of tired, it makes the glitter even more sparkly. Love this perspective!

    Sounds like fun. And I do think we need to watch what we expect out of things. If we expect too much disappointment may set in.
