Waiting, waiting, waiting. We are all doing it. In some way or another, each and every one of us is waiting for something right at this very minute. At the moment, I have one friend waiting to go into labor while another waits to hear from the doctor about a life saving medical break through. While these are all happening, the rest of us are waiting for things like the light to turn green, waiting for assembly to begin…or end, waiting for snack-time, waiting for the race to start or for the guy to pull out of the parking space so you can have his spot. I know that Miles is waiting for lunch, even though he just had breakfast. I am waiting for the UPS man and I am ready to give him a hug when my new lights come in. He is just waiting for a signature. In the above photo, Sir Peter waits for his first guest to arrive to celebrate his birthday. Since we have the time to think while were waiting, it’s important to realize that most of the things we are waiting for hinge on another person or on something we sometimes can’t control like mother nature or God’s will. While we all like to think we are all in complete control of our destiny, uncertainty makes waiting a chore. That’s why we share the earth with about 6 billion other people. Were all connected in the waiting game. So it makes sense to me to wait and pass the time together. Waiting alone has its merit, but doesn’t being with other people make the waiting game just seem better? That is except when your on line at Disney World...less people...better. So, while your waiting, look for your little miracle today in the people or things around you. You may find that what is right in front of you is what you were waiting for in the first place.
For a few minutes my waiting is done, the package has arrived...Now i am waiting for someone to teach me how to use this thing.
