Patience

My mother gave me a book about 10 years ago that I read every so often…Simple Abundance. I would not describe my mother as a very touchy-feely person, she was very strong, protective, and realistic, but she had a depth and grace that went beyond words. Today I opened the book and this is what it said…

Whatever we are waiting for--peace of mind, contentment, grace--it will surely come to us, but only when we are ready to receive it with an open and grateful heart...While you are waiting patiently, take comfort and joy in the simple springtime rituals of rejuvenation.

Funny, I was just talking about being impatient yesterday. All things come to those who wait, right? I hope you find that place that helps you wait patiently…
