I Had To Laugh

I was on a call with my boss today engaged in a "catch up" conversation where I share updated info on current clients, areas going well and areas where I need assistance, yada yada - when the conversation turned to a colleague who requires an extra bit of patience every now and then. My boss commended me on having patience with this person while they learn the process and I just had to laugh. The very word "patience" means so much to me right now that I couldn't begin to think that anything work related could even remotely require such a label. Patience I said? Yes, I can do that. Patience? You ain't seen patience my friend...

Now for a little 007 secret ninja top secret info: I may or may not have sent an email to our adoption consultant today that may or may not have resulted in the receipt of information that may or may not have made us think that referral(s) are on the horizon...and may or may not be enough to include us! I'm going to hold my breath for the next few days and try not to turn blue...I'll be taking ALL of your suggestions from my earlier post for hobbies to keep me busy, thanks!

AAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I MAY OR MAY NOT (the latter is untrue) BE TOTALLY EXCITED AND HOPING WITH YOU FOR THE POTENTIAL REFERRAL ON THE HORIZON!!!!

Ok, enough caps.
But, seriously-"patience" has taken on a totally, completely, amazingly different connotation.
I was always the "impatient" person and now whenever someone tells me to quit being impatient I give them a great big ppp-shaw!

Seriously though-no joke-get the referral, be happy, have happy hubby and you time AND THEN POST ABOUT IT! :)

Good morning! Is it coincidence or God speaking? My devotions this morning were about, yes, you guessed it, PATIENCE! The fruit of the Spirit if love, joy, peace, PATIENCE! It was a reminder to pray - again, and again, and again - have you asked God to give you some fruit - RIGHT NOW! :) Sounds like we need to talk - RIGHT NOW! :) Sounds like I need a dose of PATIENCE - RIGHT NOW! Have a beautiful day.

Oh, so funny that your cat is named Bode. We named our dog after skier Bode Miller. Love the name. Isabell is a great name, no matter how you spell it! There are so many ways.
