“Have patience. All things are difficult before they become easy.” ~ Saadi


I consider myself to be a relatively patient person. I appreciate the value of waiting for something. I believe we appreciate more that which we wait and work to receive. I don’t like to be hurried, preferring to take my time and plan my course.

I’m patient. Until I’m not. Unless I’m not.

Truth be told, there are certain things I struggle to be patient with. Back to the drawing board today. Beginning again. (I’ve snagged that phrase for my own in recent months: begin again. It’s a good one, yes?)

Something fun on the calendar today. The office building I worked in for the better part of twenty years, that has been shuttered for the past–I don’t know–seven or eight years, has a new tenant. They’re having an open house this afternoon and my bestie and I are heading down to have a look around. It will be fun to see what it looks like now after all these years. I wonder what ghosts we’ll come upon.


I’m a writer, reader, and creative. I thought by now I’d have things figured out, but I keep coming up with more questions. I think that’s okay. I’m here most mornings pondering ordinary things and the thin places where faith intersects.

  1. Love this image Linda, I don’t what it is. Patience seems to escape me these days. I want to get it right all up front and need to have a chat with myself alot lately. Still learning, even at this age, it seems.
