PATIENCE vs. WISDOM


After some thought, I don't believe patience and wisdom should be adversaries or that they should be in an "either - or" situation. It is very important the two work in tandem at times.


There are instances, one might be too patient if they did not possess the wisdom to know when to move things along. On the other hand, the wisest person may make a grave mistake if they don't know when or how to be patient.


Thankfully, it appears the dog has learned both!!


I hope you are patient and plan wisely how you will budget your time and energy over this long weekend. Maybe you will be able to schedule some down time - some time to relax and not be busy.
