Life Teaches Us To Be Patient


In a world where we have grown accustomed to everything being instantaneous, life teaches us to be patient. I remember the first time I let an older boy drive my daughter home from a football game. It seems like yesterday I was standing in the window, face glued to the glass praying I would see the car pull into the driveway. I’ve waited for test results and 9 months to pass so I could finally hold the little creature that had been occupying space inside my stomach. I’ve waited for news while a loved one was sick or going through a procedure that seemed to take forever. 

There are so many things we cannot control and several that happen in their own time. All I can do is count my breaths as the time slowly creeps on by. Today is one of those days so once again I close my eyes, pray and wait. What is one time that you had no choice but to learn to be patient?

  1. For me, I think it was recovery from depression, getting myself well, and re-evaluating my life and expectations from it. It took a year, but it was a positive year, and I have never regretted it.


  2. I’m waiting for an operation at the end of July that will allow me to move forward on a scary health issue. Trying my best to stay positive and take each day one at a time. Teaching me a lot :/
