We spend a lot of time waiting.

We wait in lines to check out of the grocery store. We wait in lines to get into the ballgame.

We’ve been waiting 2000 years for Jesus to come back, and we are waiting still.

We wait for our spouses to get ready and we wait for them to get ready to go back home.

In the Army it was always, “Hurry up and wait.”

We are in a waiting time now. A month ago I had a treatment that we hope will help me recover from my disease, or at least reach some kind of reasonable relief. Turns out that it will take months before we know the score.

Waiting can be hard.

My approach is the try to ignore it. I try to get on with life. Sometimes my approach is successful and sometimes it isn’t.

I’m trying to learn to be a patient waiter.
