Dear Patience, where are you?

I'm a control freak. I've let go quite a bit over the years, but I still like to have some control over every aspect of my life. I'm not sure if that's from my childhood, just the way it's supposed to be, or a product of my environment? Regardless..... It is what it is. I know this about myself and most days I'm ok with it. Other days I'm consumed with controlling things in my life that really and not control ABLE. Things that require time, patience, and due course. Things that no one else is controlling, save God. I know good things are worth the wait. But we don't really realize that until they come to fruition. You look back and say "that was so worth it!" Of course you're going to say that.....NOW you have what you want and everything else is in the past. This waiting part is the worst. I can't do anything to hurry the situation. And that, my friends, is agony some days.

So today I pray for patience. The calm to know that everything is working out the way it's supposed to. The serenity to know that, what will be what will be. To just be able to say "Que sera sera". Wait. I feel a song coming on.....................LMAO! Well at least I can still laugh at my silliness. I think rushing things wouldn't be a good idea anyway but today I would like a crystal ball to just take a little peak into the future to see how it all works out.

An THAT is where it's at today. So as a remedy I'm going to keep myself super busy.Blog, breakfast, elliptical, shower, wrapping presents, cleaning,lunch, visit a friend to get a book (that I'm sure I need), groceries, kids from school,supper,maybe a game.................. All with really LOUD music! hehehe

This picture could be me today, minus the frown and the baby. Add an extra martini! LOL
Thanks for letting me rant about stuff you have no idea about. It does help.


  1. patience is a virtue...that's all I got;) great rant!

  2. Ooops, didn't realize I was logged out...THAT comment up there is from me;)

  3. Years ago I prayed for patience, literally PLEADED with God for patience! His answer seemed trite, mean. He simply said "wait".
    Years on, I still wait for allusive patience. I have learned however, that when im truly at my most impatient, it's usually out of my control. The "thing" is not up to me at all. But that's only when I'm honest...
    Good luck!


I truly appreciate your comments and look forward to reading them!
