Patience – Thank You

She waited; we waited. The beautiful tiger.We went to Animal Kingdom on Monday. It was wall to wall people. No doubt the park was at capacity. As usual, though, there are times when you can find a peaceful place away from the herd. Whilst the crowds pressed against the window, she kept her distance. She waited, and they lost patience and left.

Sandy and I quietly moved to the window and waited. There she was, looking at us from over the hill. Satisfied that she could patrol in peace, she moved into our viewing area. Satisfied that waiting was going to pay off, we remained quiet and still.

For several minutes she patrolled her territory near the window. More people came, and she quietly sauntered back over the hill. We knew she was there, but our private audience was over.

There are times I get hopelessly frustrated when I cannot get to something or see over obstacles or people. If I’m patient and work around the situation, often good things will happen. We all have limitations, some more obvious than others, but if we are patient and believe we can accomplish much.

Thank you for stopping by. I appreciate each of you. And thank you for your patience as I went too long without writing. I had an unwelcome guest sharing my body in the form of MS fatigue. I’m hoping it left and went back to wherever it came from in the first place.
