As life dwindled away, the little old lady, weakened by illness, lay bedridden. I asked her what she wanted her day to be. She replied, “I am waiting…”.
“Waiting?” I asked?
“Yes, just waiting - for whatever comes next.”
Don’t wait for things to happen, to get easier, or simpler, or better.
Life’s complications continue.
Learn to be happy right now.
Learn to fill your days with love and loving.
Otherwise, you’ll run out of time - waiting…
