Bated Breath ... #writebravely #WriteTribeProBlogger #FridayReflections

This week's prompt at  #WriteTribeProBlogger Challenge  &  #FridayReflections is bated breath.

Dictionary meaning:

To wait with bated breath, is to wait in an anxious or excited way to see what happens next.

So here are some bated breath moments in my life:

   * Scanning the school board for my ISC results

   * Scanning the newspaper for my BCom results

   * Flying through a typhoon from Hong Kong to Singapore

   * Descending into Wellington in a gale force Northerly

   * Awaiting the outcome of an interview

   * Awaiting that little cry that tells you all is well with your baby

   *  Awaiting exam results of the kids

   * Awaiting the outcome of university applications

   * Awaiting the outcome of  hospitalisations and illnesses of loved ones

Bated breath moments can be very stressful. But I have been blessed that most of my bated breath moments have turned out favourably.
