Wait ironically is a four letter word but no it’s not a “bad” four letter word like some would have us believe and yes it is so hard to do! Yes it’s hard and who really likes this word, really.
We all at one time or another say..I can’t wait for warmer or colder weather, I can’t wait for this hard time to be over or this pain to go away and the list goes on we can fill in the blank of I can’t wait for……to be over!
I am learning that memories are made in the waiting. With each season of life there is a memory. We never know when the last time we will hold someone,talk or hear them. We will never now when this time or event will be our last.
A wrap up attitude robs us of our present moments. The most treasured moments when looked back on are then remembered. Will we remember them and wish we didn’t “wrap up” that season of our life with such a hurried attitude or will we be so thankful we cherished that person,time or event. Will we have something to remember with such fondness that the breath can still be caught in our throats.
Embraces each season of life and not wish it away. Be grateful for the wait.
