By in Personal


I can say I have never been a patient person. Actually being inpatient person has probably harmed me in on way or another along my life journey. As I matured in to a man, I was the type of person that what ever I wanted, I wanted it NOW. Some times not having the patients cost me in negative ways. Until my son was born I didn't really know what patience was, but he has been changing that in me ever since. My son has made me a better man in so many ways that I probably couldn't count them all. I am grateful that I was blessed to have him. Being a single full time dad takes a lot of patience. His needs defiantly comes before mine. Teaching him to walk, learn how to potty, and even getting him to eat the right foods, takes a whole lot of patients. Every time you take a trip anywhere with a youngster, it prolongs your trip and it takes patience. Don't get me wrong, I love teaching him everything he needs to learn, but still it takes patience. At the moment i'm trying to teach him how to tie his shoes, we have almost got it down, but wow this is taking a lot of patience. This patience that he has taught me is helping me in another important part of my life. My love life. My lover lives in another country and we have the wait for the Visa process. With her living 10,000 miles away at the moment, it takes a whole lot of patience for the both of us, to let our relationship to grow and bloom. It makes it easier that we are both totally devoted to each other and we have each other hearts, but man does it take some patience. Patiently waiting for the times we can talk and video chat, patiently waiting for the trip over there this summer and the patiently waiting for the visa to be approved. I never thought in a million years I would having a long distance relationship in my life, like the one I have right now. It's funny how some patience a toddler teaches you and of course the Love I have for Kathy can change just that. I'm so grateful for the patience that I have developed through my son and now my future wife. It is true that Patience can bring you the greatest things in life.

I've heard that patience makes the heart grow fonder. My prayers for you and Kathy to be together soon with the baby.

Patience is a virtue. Impatience can lead to anger and saying things that you do not mean. I value patience above all.

Having patience is always good for anyone as you can really achieve many things in life if you have patience with you

i am impatient too. I can't tolerate to teach my son school work because his head could think of computer online games while I am worried about his school work.

Sometimes its very hard to wait patiently. I´m being tested right now with the complications holding up the sale of my house, sometimes I could blow my top over all the silly holdup´s, but that wouldn´t do any good anyway.

Patience is one thing I have trouble with. My husband tells me this all the time. I know patience is a virtue and I ask God a lot to help me have it.
