Patience is my middle name

Most people think it is Jean but no, it is patience. I often joke that if I were a doctor I would be rich (patients - patience)..... Cheesy I know.

Anyway, I waited 8 years to get a divorce. I knew for 8 years it was over.... and yet I was patient and waited until the time was right.

I waited for far too long to get my new car. I was patiently waiting again, for the right time.

I waited months and 5 dates for a first kiss. I waited for several more months after that to admit to myself I was in love and then more than a year it took me to admit it to him. Again, the time had to be right....

I waited for the right time to get a dog. To go back to school. To get the right job. To buy a Wii.

I wait. I wait. I wait.

I do this with everything. I say I want to take risks but do I? No. I wait and hope and wish and talk and dream about things but I don't make them happen. I sometimes wish I had a little cricket to help me make decisions.

At any rate, I am patiently waiting for what is to come next thing. What is it? I don't know but I can be patient. I can wait.

After all, it is my name.....

"Patience is a virtue" I'm often told. Another is "You have the patience of Job." Then hubby says never pray for patience unless you're prepared for what may lie ahead.
Either way I think patience is a GOOD thing to have. Not many of us have it.

Patience is a great middle name.

It's much better than "Run Headlong Into A Well Filled With Poo"...which has been my middle name at times.

It's a good name. It took me years to learn it. Now it drives everybody mad as they got used to impulsive me!

My middle name is "hot-sauce". I'm not sure what that means.

I'm a little drunk.

PS. If you wait long enough your life will find you. It's just a matter of where you want to be when it does. Are you where you want to be? Where do you want to go? Can I have another hard lemonade? These are the questions that must be answered.

Waiting is fine, but waiting too long is a waste!
