“Patience is the companion of wisdom.”
– St. Augustine
As we recharge our run-down batteries this weekend, remember that patience is also a gift of time we can bring.
Especially when we’re tired there is a real temptation to be short with people, to not listen, to argue with our children, and to express our petty frustrations for all the world to hear. Agreed, there certainly are times to charge ahead, but a lack of patience with others over trivial matters rarely accomplishes anything. In fact, it may harm our relationships in spite of all that we’ve given to build them.
At those times, the gift of patience is a gift of time.
Plus, it’s the wise thing to do.
Today’s gift of time … Exhibited as much patience as a tired body could muster. Also played a little free rice to help feed the hungry.
