Waiting

I am waiting on a phone call
that will change my life.

I don't know what it will be like to be a working mom
and I am nervous about it,
but I am also assured from mighty prayer
that God is watching over me
and will strengthen me.

I was just thinking about how much I hate waiting.
I've never been too good at waiting.
Give me my future NOW dangit.
Don't make me wait.

And then instead of worrying about
whether or not the phone call is going to come,
I giggled some with Caroline,
and made her favorite treat.
A bottle of milk.
Yes, she is two and still gets a bottle.

Then I sat down to read some scripture online.
I need to do my dailies.
And what pops up?
LG's pandora radio.
I guess he made it happen automatically.

And waiting became an all new experience,
as I listened intently to LG's favorites.
I wondered how I can sing more like
Sarah McLachlan or Natalie Merchant.

And a broad smile conquers all
when I hear
Somewhere Over the Rainbow.

It is such a beautiful song.
And it played three times
while I was getting my root canal.
I imagined I was on the beach,
and made sure the dentist knew
that my husband hates that glitch in pandora.
Sometimes it plays the same songs over and over again.

The older I get, the better I get at waiting.
In fact, if you think about it,
all of the good things in my life
have happened while I was waiting on what's next.
Waiting is the best place to be.

Good luck with your waiting, and with your answer. I know you have been wanting a job for a while, and I hope you get it!!

I hope whomever is going to call... doesn't make you wait too long.

I don't have a problem with Caroline being two and still taking a bottle either... whatever makes them happy and secure... we have to grow up too fast anyway... so let babies and kids just enjoy being just that.

I am not very good at waiting either. I am slowly learning to do it patiently. It sure makes me feel better knowing that someone else is in control.

Oh, and good luck in waiting. I'll never forget waiting for the call to adopt our babies, seems like it took forever, and now I'm here 10 years later and loving every minute. Best Wishes, Andi
