day 282: patience

This morning, yesterday, the day before…I’ve been anxious. Worried, if you will. Waiting for a phone call.

It came and guess what–I lost a lot of time I could have spent smiling.

It’s a lesson for next time I find myself in this situation, which will very likely be Tuesday. Mom said I was born a dragon but sometimes I act like a mouse–who wants to be a mouse? Worse, a tearful, brooding mouse? Not this girl.

There are some things I just have to do a better job of remembering.


And also

“There are times to stay put, and what you want will come to you, and there are times to go out into the world and find such a thing for yourself.”
Lemony Snicket, Horseradish: Bitter Truths You Can’t Avoid

And finally, Isaiah 40:31.
