Presumably, I am not the only person who doesn’t like to wait.
It seems like everywhere you go you have to wait.
Dining out always entails a wait. Especially Texas Road House, holy moly! You get there at 5pm and it’s packed.
Anyway, the time you are waiting seems to be greatly impacted by why you are waiting.
For example, if you are at the dentist’s office the time you are waiting for the examination to be completed seems to take much longer than the line you are waiting in at Cedar Point.
Road trips always seem to take so much longer to get to your destination than to get back home. The distance to a rest area is not in proportion to the level of fullness of one’s bladder. You’ll pass by 50 of them when you don’t need one and none when you do!
Time seems to creep along when you’re pregnant but everyone else’s seems to fly by!
Kids grow up much faster than adults do. One moment they’re celebrating their first birthday and the next you’re getting an invitation to their wedding in the mail. Warp speed.
You go to the doctor’s office, clearly, you will be waiting or they have designed a whole room without a purpose.
Recently, I had a routine test done. I was notified that I needed some additional testing to rule out any problems. The additional testing was completed the next morning. Then, I had to wait a week to find out the results. Two phone calls to the Dr’s office and finally I got a return call. The test showed nothing out of the ordinary. However, the person who called told me to follow up with another doctor. I asked why but she didn’t know so I am waiting to hear what I need to do for my next step. Why do you need a follow-up if everything is fine?
Waiting is tough. It makes me anxious. Anxiety makes me antsy. Being antsy lately, has made me crafty. At least that is a productive thing if not a cheap thing!
Anyway, my takeaway from all this is to try to return phone calls and texts faster.
So, if you are in a season of Waiting, remember you are never alone. God is always right there with you.
