The Waiting Place

This week marks the final week before school starts. The tide of mayhem in my house is cresting. We have relatives coming tomorrow for a week, and I have not just one, but two houses to clean today before their arrival (yikes!).

With that in mind, for the rest of this week I will be re-posting some of my favorite posts from our first year in Texas.

This morning I dug through my archives for a post to submit to another website, to represent my faith journey, and was reminded of one I wrote two years ago about waiting. At the time I felt at my most uncomfortable with the situation I was in.

It was good to pause for a moment and reflect on how far I have come since then. Other than eagerly anticipating the start of school in six days, I don't feel stuck in a waiting place today. Waiting places have great value, but it's nice not to be obsessing about a road block.

Enjoy the story by clicking the link below. I would love to hear your response if you have one.

This post is also linked to Tuesdays Unwrapped, in which we celebrate the gift found in everyday moments. As I remember 2007-2008 as the year of waiting for my house to sell, today I celebrate the gift of not being in a waiting place.
