Wow—what a crazy two months it has been for me. I’ve slipped in my blogs but I am fighting to get back on schedule.
However, I did want to talk about patience.
Where I am at right now is getting a decent amount of snow and sleet. Which would be awesome because of snow days and what not BUT this is Texas. They don’t deal with this on a regular basis.
Anywho, I am on my way back from work and my car is icing. My defroster is up at full blast. After five minutes, it doesn’t appear to be working. I turn off my defroster and I try to drive anyway. I got about half a mile before I had to pull over.
It had frosted over and I couldn’t see out my front windows. My sides and back windows were perfectly clear.
I try the defroster again and this time I leave it up.
Ten minutes later my windows cleared up.
I had to chuckle to myself because I wanted to get home and go to bed. I didn’t want to wait for the defroster to do its job. I wanted the windows cleared in two minutes.
But the weather reminded me that life doesn’t go to my pace. There are times I have to wait and let things run it course. If I try to rush, it’ll just waste time and I have to wait anyway.
With my college life about to be done, this little lesson is going to come into play a lot more. I am thankful that I was reminded of it again.
P.S: one last note: at one point my defroster was clearing the frost but fogged up my window. To clear the fog I rolled down a window. Craziest driving conditions—ever!
