Patience

“Patience is a virtue, Genevieve,” the mater would intone, pulling the fun books out of my hands so I would do the boring books, which is how the Greeks and Romans and I first got acquainted.

She used to hide my library books so I would do homework. It felt like cruel and unusual punishment.

My childhood was spent mostly swallowing pages…I’ve probably read thousands.

So.

Reader.

Whatever you are waiting for…

Whatever you are working around…

Whatever you are building toward…

Whatever you are hoping for…

Whatever you are wanting most…

Most importantly, whatever you are praying for…

Patience is a virtue, my dear friend.
