Waiting for...

Wait: the act of waiting (remaining inactive in one place while expecting something); "the wait was an ordeal for her."

I hate this life lesson.
I am waiting for so many things.
I am waiting for this Master's class I am taking to END.

I am waiting for our trip to Minnesota to BEGIN.

I am waiting our new family member (a puppy!) to ARRIVE.

I am waiting for my friend Hannah to RETURN.
I am waiting to see some of the injustices happening my family to be RESOLVED.
I am waiting for the bigger issues of life and our world to be UNDERSTANDABLE.
(I am always waiting to win the LOTTERY.) :)

My fear is that my waiting will get in the way of my living. I may miss the small things that make life, well...life.

I know waiting is part of it all and I also know that once I have waited and:

my class is over
I cross the state lines to MN
my puppy is here
my friend is back
my family is healed
my world still turns
(my millions are spent!):
I will be living my life.

And this is what I was waiting for.

  1. Friend-

    Here's your challenge:

    Blog one thing everyday that makes you happy. Practice looking for the miraculous in the mundane. It will be good for your soul as you're waiting.

    Love you.
