Wait for it!

How many times a week, a day, an hour do you have to wait for something?

And if you have children, how many times do you have to make the statement, WAIT!

Recently, I was reflecting on my childhood and we spent many hours, days, weeks waiting.

Life was slower back then, options were limited, we didn’t run around so much, we used our feet or bikes.

We didn’t have computers or cell phones, we were lucky to have a radio and a television. Yes, one television in the house!

I remember having a radio of my own when I was 11 or 12 and was so happy to have it!

So go ahead and wait for it. Sometimes the waiting is the best part!

Just wait until your father gets home!”

Do you remember a time when life had consequences? I sure do! If it wasn’t my mother telling us to “just wait until your father gets home!”, it was a neighbor yelling at us, “I’m going to tell your mother!”

Today, cell phone cameras do an even better job of reporting what really happened!

We need to be mindful of this and exercise restraint.

I do miss the less uncomplicated days for the 60’s 70’s and even 80’s but hey, I love my iPhone and all that it delivers to my hand instantaneously!

Remember to keep in mind that actions have consequences.
