12/19/11                                               Day 24:  “patience”

“Adopt the pace of nature; her secret is patience.”  ~  Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Patience is the companion of wisdom” ~ St. Augustine

Patience is a virtue.  When you have it, you know.  It is a quality that I 
highly respect and continue to practice…daily.  If you want to know what your
level of patience is, try this little experiment:  Next time you are in the grocery store
or any store checking out, pick the longest line and wait.  Or if caught in traffic,
don’t try to weave in and out, just go with the flow.  And then…experience what
feelings are coming over you.  Are you feeling patient or anxious?  Relaxed or
agitated?  A person can learn a lot about themselves through patience.

Remember…where there is patience there is wisdom.
