Patience, quiet steadfast perseverance, an ability or willingness to suppress restlessness when confronted with delay. I have been trying to practice patience these past 4-5 weeks as we have been waiting for the results of my husbands job interview. I was so excited and really had this deep seated feeling that this was "it". But time has marched on and no phone call or letter and I am giving up hope. I know it is how so many families are feeling these days that a second income would be nice. I suppose we are more lucky than some because we do have at one steady income. I will try and continue my practice of staying in the now and trying not to be discouraged about this. We have not heard a definite no but we are bracing up for that to be the outcome. If I can wait for these grapes to ripen I can wait for a phone call or letter!
