I got this bracelet years ago and it’s more than a bracelet to me. It is my daily reminder in life to wait. It’s always been a hard thing for me to do, even as a child. I don’t like to wait. I sometimes get irritable and whine. It drives my husband crazy, I’m sure. There’s so much to see and do in life to wait for things. There’s never enough time. However, now that I have children this bracelet takes on a whole new meaning. It’s waiting for them to learn to tie their shoes or to discover the world around them. To be a great mom I have to remember this. I have to have patience.
(I, also, must add that I’m currently on an 8 hour trek back home from vacation to NY. in a car, scrunched in between two car seats 😄)
