{Patience} ♥

I have this son. He is 3 years old. 
He's more than a Blessing...at times he is my teacher. 
I am very impatient. Very. Not good. Trust me. I know. 

He is just like me. 
Everything NOW. Not later. 

But, some days he teaches me that patience is the only way. 

I have caught him several times now, waiting on me. 
{It's usually to hit play on the DVD or computer screen to get his favorite movie going.} 
The same boy that I just told 20 times to stop, wait and not touch. 
He sits and waits. 

Quietly. 

Patiently. 

Because he knows. 

That if he waits just long enough for me. 
I will come to his rescue. 

Every time. 

If only. 
I had that same patience. 

To wait. To endure. To sit quietly. To be patient! 

I would know that at the end of the wait...there is reward... 
that which  you have asked for comes with patience. 

It's what I have learned from my 3 year old son..
he is wise beyond his years and my little man.  
As an adult. 
It's easier said than done...

I love him for being a great teacher... 



{Isaiah 40:31} Yet those who wait for the LORD Will gain new strength; They will mount up with wings like eagles, They will run and not get tired, They will walk and not become weary.

I love this. I think some people forget that not only are parents great teachers, but children are also. As you know, I don't have two legged kids but I have four legged kids who work my nerves Lol! So patience is something they are still teaching me haha!
