Disconnected Thoughts

Driving home I heard the German proverb:

Patience is a bitter plant, but it bears sweet fruit.

I’ve struggled through my whole life believing I have no patience, praying for patience, wishing I had patience.  Never did it dawn on me that being patient did not mean feeling a sense of peace while waiting.  I was under the assumption that patience was an emotion rather than an action.

This realization is somewhat disappointing.

Yesterday morning Ivy and I were interviewed by Shaine Mata on his BlogTalkRadio Show.  You can download the file here.  I ended up having a lot of fun and hope to do more.

Impressive interview. Sounded professionally conducted and your’s and Ivy’s performance worthy of an Oscar. (Or Grammy since it was sound only). Good job Heather and Ivy!

Hi Heather. This is a new twist on patience for me too. It is disappointing yet makes me feel al ittle better too. We all feel it I think. At least it’s normal.

Never heard that quote before, but it is so true! I have a low patience level and struggle with that on on minute by minute basis.
