I'm sure you all know the familiar quote , " Patience is a Virtue." Well , this week I had to nanny my two cousins for three days . And ,did I ever get to practice patience !!!! Whenever my cousins would whine because they couldn't get their way , I had to remember to be patient ,yet still firm . When they would pull my hair and climb on my shoulders , I had to remember to be patient . The high-pitched decibels of screaming...Patience . The tiny, annoying things they did , I had to remember to be patient . Patience , I think , is one of things that we will use most when we become married and have children of our own . By losing your temper and getting quite angry at little children when they pull our hair or ask a million and one questions in a minute , only shows a child that this is the way you act when someone (or something happens that) disturbs you.I know many times that I lose my patience, and it doesn't end well . Instead, it brings more strife and grief to others around me .
Well , I've basically just been rambling on about patience . But really my point is that this week I've learned the virtue of patience , and I hope you know the virtue of patience , also ! It's something I'll need to keep working on my whole life through! Thankfully the Lord is there to help me.
* I will be gone this whole week . I'll be back on Saturday .Love, Sarah
