Now. NOW. NOW!

I lack patience. There I said it. (Happy hubby??) It's a sin of mine. Yes, a sin. I can't sit still. I can't wait. and I can't stand being told to wait.

Well, I feel like I am being told "wait," more times than not lately.

Wait for test results.

Wait for doctor appointments.

Wait for Adam to be fully potty trained.

Wait for a new car. (poor jeep.)

Wait for graduating college. (Will it EVER END?!)

Wait for the money for...well...everything.

Wait to put Adam in pre-school.

Wait for Andy to get a new job. (the last one didn't work out. sigh. keep praying!)

Wait.

Wait.

Wait.

I seriously think this list could go on and on.

WAIT. WAIT. WAIT.

God is teaching me something.... I know what it is... I'm just fighting it.

I'm with you my friend. I'm so impatient. It's 3:30 am and I can't wait for it to be 7...

Maggie said...

I'm not going to lie....I'm glad to see that I am not the only one with somewhat of a "patience" problem.

And to make it even worse? People who are totally patient and laid back all the time make me CRAZY. I want to shake them and tell them to hurry up for goodness sake.

Clearly I have a lot to learn.

But at least I'll know someone else in the patience class! I'll totally save you a seat...

I'm not a big fan of wait either. It is tough. Hang in there!

Blueberry said...

waiting is hard no doubt about it.

Mommy said...

Amen daughter!
What does it say in the bible?
Be patient and wait on the Lord.....

I also lack patience. I see God trying to teach me on a regular basis. I also fight it.

KEEP BELIEVING

Oh girl, I know what you mean. But God is good and things will come when it's time. Just keep the faith.

Hugs...

I could have written this post myself. I am the exact same time...I want everything to happen on MY timetable! But God has His reasons, and in time we will understand why!

Dawn said...

it's a virtue, you know.

(sorry. it's just what my mom used to say to me. and it drove me crazy.)

o dear God, looks like i'll be driving my own kids crazy.

Amy said...

Oh I hate waiting too! I hope you get to feeling better soon and everything works out for you!

Maya said...

I'm not patient at all either, and that lack of patience is starting to show up in my son. OH dear!

Thinking about you girl.

Stacy said...

I'm not high on the patience scale either. *sigh*

Well, I hope you get your test back SOON, and I hope your hubby gets a new job SOON.

My Goodness said...

Hang in there...good things come to - you know the rest.

Beth (A Mom's Life) said...

I am right there with you on this one. Patience is one virtue I am lacking in as well.

Hopefully God will hurry up and teach you whatever it is he wants you to learn. :)

Hang in there because if it's a God lesson, then it's going to be a good one!

Tranny Head said...

Ugh! Hang in there, dear ... I just know things are going to work out for you. And keep us posted on the medical thing ... we're all rooting for you!

kim said...

I think waiting is the absolute hardest thing.
You can do it. Deep breath. Quick prayer.
There. Feel better?

You know what I hate? Not being able to keep up with my bloggy mates!!!! Look how late I am!!!!
Patience. One of the Year10s today told me that if I wasn't patient I shouldn't be a teacher. With INCREDIBLE patience I sucked in my immediate response ($$%%##@@!!)and said "Thanks for that advice X....!!!!!!!" :-D
The most important lessons are the hardest to learn.

Golightly said...

I could have written this post, word for word. Don't give me the W-word! And patience - ha! What's that?

Hang in there, I know I'm trying to.

This post really rings true for me today. Hurry up and wait.
