Why is it that when you are waiting for something to happen it always seems to take forever? Every day seems like an eternity when that day isn’t the day you thought you were waiting for.
That saying “good things come to those who wait” has never held more importance to me than it does these days. I have been waiting and waiting for good things to come…the waiting is the hardest part (thanks, Tom).
Recently emotions were getting a bit testy on the home front. I was nervous all the time and being curt with everyone. Every day there was a mad rush to check the phone messages and email and for weeks on end there was no news (and no, no news isn’t good news). It was awful.
Then, somehow, it got worse. The only news coming in was bad news. Disappointing news. Difficult news. I was more stressed. I didn’t sleep, didn’t eat, didn’t know what to do.
Then one day it finally happened. The person that said “yes”. The job that I had been looking for, waiting for, hoping for, had said they wanted me (me!) That day, I immediately went and made myself and Leith a huge batch of brownies. We shared them with friends, family, even a few strangers. Between the brownies and the job, life was back on track and I was feeling better.
Ahem. My brownies are amazing.
