Learning the lesson in patience…again

55 Broadway, London

“A waiting person is a patient person. The word patience means the willingness to stay where we are and live the situation out to the full in the belief that something hidden there will manifest itself to us.” — Henri J.M. Nouwen

Yesterday my patience was severely tested. I was waiting for something important to be delivered.  A lot of things that will be happening to me in the next few days hinged on that all-important delivery.

I tried keep active and do other things to keep my mind off the fact that I was waiting.  But it was hard!  I had the TV on most of the day to distract me but didn’t even register that the great Roger Federer lost at Wimbledon!  But what I was waiting for did finally arrive.  I was just too impatient.

Note to self: when waiting allow yourself time to wait for the long haul. Your timetable isn’t the same as everyone else’s.
