This particular phrase has taken on a whole new meaning for the Ho family. We are in the phase of our adoption process where we can literally expect a call any day. This means I spend a lot of anxious hours staring at my phone and double checking to make sure the ringer is working loudly and properly. It can become exhausting. My heart leaps just a little when I hear the phone ring and I do a quick glance at every area code before I answer. This is not fun, I promise you that. I wish I could be more relaxed, I really have been up until this point, but it has become pretty impossible. The weekend has been like a mini-vacation. The agency is closed on the weekend. No concerns about getting an important phone call. It’s been a nice two days. But tomorrow is Monday. Monday, a week day. A full week looming ahead, ripe with potential. But potential is quite a tricky little thing… it is possible, but not actual. There is hope, but there is also disappointment.
So here’s to Monday and all her potential!
