Grace #45: Penultimate

November ends, a fickle month, a short month before the rest of the year slides to its end.

I like those things that come in next to last: the second to last line of a story, the second to last in line for food, the second to last to pass the finish line.

Seeing the end come makes its completion so much sweeter.

  1. I'd never thought about this before but I think I agree - second to last is often much more satisfying. You have the end within your sights; you know you can finish (the year, the job, the whatever) and that is sweeter than the end itself. Christmas Eve, for example, is just as sweet as The Big Day, but sweeter because there is still anticipation.


Leave your grace here...
