Patience: The Slipperiest of Virtues (a confession, of sorts)
It’s true, no?
See? So slippery… that patience.
Alternate title: Patience is Like a Water Snake
I confess. I am an impatient soul. I can’t wait.
My issues with patience rear their ugliest heads (a 14-headed water snake?) when I have to wait.
I know what needs to get done, or what I need to do and I really don’t have the time (patience) for slow people, stubbed toes, forgotten items, and people who choose the right lane to go straight when I am behind them and need to go right and I can turn on a red light, but they can’t go straight on a red light (hitherhencetofore – me waiting) so why didn’t they just get in the left lane so I could turn right on a red light?!
Or how about the EVERY TIME WE HAVE TO BE SOMEWHERE ON TIME… and Lucy bumps into a wall and needs an ice pack/bandaid/comfort.
No time for owies, kid.
I actually told my 6 year old this morning after she walked into a wall (seriously, people…), “You need to stop getting hurt right before we have to leave. We just don’t have time for that!”
Also, I walk fast. Even a leisurely stroll is PAINFUL. I honestly don’t know how to ramble. People who walk slowly… Were I a betting woman I’d bet I’ll die of a heart attack in Walmart – behind a SLOW PERSON.
I didn’t tell you about that time at Walmart, did I?
I still don’t know if I am going to share that story. Heck, I still don’t know if I should show my face in that store ever again. Not that my “incident” stood out above anything else anyone has ever seen at the Walmarts.
But I digress…
Superman had kryptonite.
I have patience.
Except I don’t.
Speaking of patience… here is a picture of the patient being… patient:
