The More Things Change...

Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose...   I have learned that, sometimes in life it is sufficent just to wait and patience will prevail ...

He that can have patience can have what he will.
~~ Benjamin Franklin

All things come round to him who will but wait.
~~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

A handful of patience is worth more than a bushel of brains.
~~ Dutch proverb

Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience.
~~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

One of life's dirty little secrets is that not all problems have to be faced immediately. Sometimes they go away on their own accord.

Patience is a virtue ....... perhaps I should work on my virtues.

...and breathe. Keep breathing, Jo.

I LOVE these quotes. The Dutch proverb is particularly imaginary!

What a joy, by the way, to flip through your beautiful blog.

Goodness, we share so much more than our name...I agree with your viewpoints on everything I've read!

Have you posted any pics of your "tree house"? What a lovely image I have of it in my mind.

Patience is the one area of my life where I KNOW I've grown. Even Dr. M is proud of me for this :) But that doesn't make it easy, or make my blood pressure stay level. But I'm working on making my inward calm match the outward calm.

Good things come to those who wait. I'm still waiting! lol Cheers, Jo!
