What's something that has recently 'tried your patience'?Florida drivers. If you are from Florida I apologize, but my experience this past week has been that they are rude! If you need to get over in a lane, forget about it. If there is a detour that has been mandated, you can bet Florida drivers are going to cut you off to get in front of you. It was really crazy to me for it to be so obvious!
Do you think patience comes to us naturally or is it something you have to learn as you grow? On a scale of 1-10 generally how patient are you? (1= I blow at the drop of a hat and 10= I've got all the time in the world.)Patience is definitely something I have developed over the years. My patience level used to easily be a 1. But I now have an uncanny ability to just move through frustrations more easily. It does sometimes actually take me talking myself through those times. I just remind myself that it's okay, there is (usually) nothing I can do about it, and it will all work out. I also take deep, cleansing breaths. I would give my patience level about an 8 now.
Share about a time when you felt like you could fly. Or a time you wished you could fly. Or a time you felt like you were flying.Last Thursday morning, as I was starting my morning in Florida, I received a phone call from Kyndal in Missouri. She was at her routine OB appointment where they had just learned that her baby no longer had a heartbeat. And I couldn't be with her. She was alone. It was a routine appointment so she went alone, although if I had been home I would have gone with her because that's just what we do. Collin was at work, and she was not able to get ahold of him. Nothing mattered to me at that moment than to get someone to her immediately. I called Dawson, and he and Taylar rushed there, as did her Mother-in-Law. I would have given anything to have been able to have flown right to her side.
Your favorite song with the word 'fly' in the title or lyrics, or your favorite song that relates to flying in some way?"Fly Like an Eagle", the Seal version.
What's in your fall picnic basket and where are we picnicking in your neck of the woods this time of year?We are picnicking at Farrington Park in my little hometown watching the kids play and admiring the beautifully changing leaves and the wildlife on the pond. Our basket contains sandwiches, grapes, apple slices, and some homemade pumpkin bread.
