Advantage of Foresight

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Advantage of Foresight.”

There would be no advantage to foresight, no matter what it might disclose. Chance and surprise are two of the greatest reasons for being alive. There would be no reason to count the blessing of seeing the smiling faces of our children and spouses. We would already know they were okay, or that something tragic was about to occur. There would be no reason to roll out of bed to check the stock market, or listen to the missed calls on the answering machine. The element of surprise would be gone, and with it the reason to wait for tomorrow.

I’m content with my real estate agent’s favorite line – “wait and see”.
