“Sitting here in limbo waiting for the tide to flow.” Jimmy Cliff
“A man watches his pear tree day after day, impatient for the ripening of the fruit. Let him attempt to force the ripening of the fruit, and he may spoil both fruit and tree. But let him patiently wait, and the ripe pear at length falls into his lap!” Abraham Lincoln
This week is the beginning of watching and waiting. I take my husband to the doctor to see what improvement he has made. We will have to jump out of bed at the crack of dawn to wait for an early ferry which will get us to Seattle early enough that we will then have to wait for the doctor. In the meantime, in these four horrific months I have been watching and waiting to see if my husband’s health improves. This is a LONG wait!
We are also in the process of moving so we are attempting to connect with Comcast to arrange to have our computers set up. This means we have to wait in line for our appointment date to arrive, and then sit in the apartment for a couple of hours watching and waiting for the utility man to show up.
Since we are downsizing from a house to an apartment, we will need to have most of our furniture and various mementos auctioned off, so we are waiting and watching for the day when the auctioneer shows up. Wednesday, the big day is finally here!!
Then BLESS OUR NEIGHBORS as they volunteered to move us. They are watching and waiting for us to get rid of all our excess stuff so they can pick a date that works with their work schedules. So we wait with bated breath on a move date. In the meantime, I still have to work at moving the things I can move to make our process more efficient. I would rather sit and whittle my thumbs as my energy is WHACKED.
