Anticipation

Anticipation so often speaks of hope
Sometimes hope is difficult to swallow
We know there is a reward for hard work
But sacrifice and waiting becomes tiresome

It is hard to say no today for the sake of tomorrow
It is hard to work for an unseen reward
It is so easy to take what is here now
Ambition takes hope and anticipation

Everything worthwhile requires sacrifice
Facing pain and fear
Working whether or not the reward is in view
Knowing that the reward will come next year

Anticipation and hope is found in planning for children
Planning for grandchildren
Knowing that the future extends beyond our own lives
So we can plant trees knowing someone else will enjoy them

Sometimes the rewards come within our own life
Perhaps in just a couple years
The heart dances with anticipation
But today that future seems so far away

Hope keeps us working hard!
Tomorrow will reward today’s work
