Visit Bridget Chumbley’s site to read all the amazing entries into this week’s carnival, I thoroughly recommend it.
Here’s my offering:
Today’s carnival topic is: Patience.
I could tell you lots of stories about patience that my wife has told me. She’s a nurse, so she sees patience all the time.
Oh, wait, that’s patienTS not patienCE…..
That’s harder then….
They say patience is a virtue. By that reckoning I’m not very virtuous.
I’m pretty good at being patient with people outside of my immediate family, but with my wife and kids, I think my patience ran out a day or so after my first daughter was born – and has never returned!
That’s something I am incredibly ashamed about.
I’m sure God has me at home looking after my kids all day as a way of teaching me patience but I’m obviously a VERY slow learner!
One day I may actually know something about patience and so I’ll write about it from a position of understanding.
Right now though, I know I have patience away from my family but not WITH them – so I can’t profess to know or understand anything about the subject.
I wish I did. For my family’s sake and mine.
Patience is DEFINITELY something I need to learn!
