This page is about the saying “Patience is a virtue” Possible meaning: The ability to wait for something without getting angry or upset is a valuable quality in a person.

This unfortunately is not one of my strong suites. I have always heard that you should not pray and ask for patience. Because God will take you off your feet. He has done this to me several times. Sometimes into the hospital or sometimes just sent me to my own bed with something that makes me unable to continue down the path I was taking. This tells you that I have ask for patience before, not out loud though. If you are like me, I tend to forget that God hears my thoughts. I am certainly glad that Satan doesn’t have that same ability.

Waiting on this book to get published has taught me a little about patience. Not good at it, but because my publisher wants it perfect, he tends to take longer than I can stand.

So if you write a book and have a deadline that you have chosen for yourself just back off of that date. My mama’s favorite saying was “a watched pot never boils.” In other words when you just keep watching and waiting for something it seems to take much longer than if you stay busy doing something to take your mind off of it.

That being said, it’s off to bed for this blogger. Here’s hoping next week will present me with Robbie Learns About Kindness in print.

Have you ever wanted to write? I always have a story or a poem going on in my head. Sometime it’s very tiring to feel like you have to have a pencil and paper handy. I have finally found the most wonderful app to help me out with this problem. I usually have my phone with me so Google Doc has been a lifesaver. Plus with my IPhone I just tell my story out loud and it types it for me. I can then send it to my computer and Microsoft Word.

I chose this picture because I can totally identify with being in the woods.  As a little girl that was my most favorite place to be when I wasn’t up in my Mulberry Tree reading a book.  My friend Diane Cole and I would build houses and sweep the dirt floors with ragweed brooms.  Now ragweed just make me sneeze and my eyes swell shut.  Oh the joys of getting old.  Hey that’s something else I don’t understand, why do they (whoever they) are call old age the Golden Years?  It must be because it costs so much.  I am sorry, but I do chase rabbits a lot as you will find out.

Ok building houses in the woods was what I was talking about.  We would take a hoe and string to cut down the weeds or small trees that were growing in our house and then sweet the floors clean.  We would tie limbs to the perimeter of our room and leave a door.  We would make furniture from tree roots or rocks if they were small.  This experience came in really handy when I had my first grandchild.  But for now this is enough since I am just trying to get my blog set up so I can talk about kids, grandkids, books, and paintings.  Those are my favorite topics.  See you in the funny papers.
