Waiting on Good Things
While eating dinner tonight, my kiddo started asking when she could have dessert. My husband, in an effort to be helpful, attempted to explain the importance of being patient, using the old standby phrase, "Good things come to those who wait."
Without missing a beat, I quipped, "Yeah, and I've been patient long enough, so the rest of my life better be a freakin' fairy tale."
We laughed about it. And after all, there are lots of good things out there to be seen and experienced, some as close as my own backyard (or the state park)...
