 "Hope is patience with the lamp lit." ~ Tertullian

As I age, patience seems to me an easier friend to call upon, but I always need to consciously remind myself of its benefits and its rewards. I've learned that distracting myself from things that I can do nothing about at the moment, makes time sweeter and life richer.

can't get here fast
enough for my use of
its benefits. please hurry up,
now please.


  1. I think that's an important part of patience, that distracting ourselves while waiting. It does have a way of filling up time beautifully with meaning, rather than frittering the minutes away.

  2. Never been my strong point, but you're right: it gets easier with age.

  3. patience? bleh...but here is beauty, always found, always available, in the moment, the sweetest pursuit. i wish to find beautiful things, and to find things beautiful...

  4. I have grown less patient as I've grown older. Guess I need to work on it.
