Waiting, waiting ...

Do you realise that we are waiting all the time.

We have to wait for almost everything.

Waiting for the traffic lights to change,
Waiting for a parking lot,
Waiting for the dough to rise before we can put it into the oven to bake.
Waiting for a table at the food centre at lunch hour,
Waiting at the doctors for your turn.

Recently I have noticed my kids tell , or rather constantly remind me that: Patience is a virtue.
Yes, I know that.

But I may be waiting more than many of you coz I spend quite a lot of time:

Waiting for my kids to get ready to send them to school,
Waiting for them at dismissal
Waiting for their enrichment / tuition / piano classes to end to bring them home,
Waiting for them to finish eating,
And this week, waiting for their exams to end so that I can breathe easier.

Is it any wonder that I have become more impatient considering all that waiting I have been doing?? Altogether now: Ommmmm ... to help me be more patient.
