Reflecting on Patience . . .

Patience is not only tender, respectful and loving, it is quietly defiant; it knows how to hold its own ground. It has a calm, silent authority that insists by example what must change. It empathizes with pain and suffering but provides a way of going beyond mere endurance. You can trust its strength and wisdom. It moves slowly but it the right pace; it's always there, right behind you, offering you just the help you need. Its power is felt by others; it changes them, too.
