...it SURE is slow

After too much time assembling the border and a few other tiny sections,
we cleared the table to get ready for dinner.
With a sigh, I said,
"It's not impossible, but it SURE is slow!"
As soon as the words were out of my mouth,
I realized how descriptive they were of so many OTHER things in my life.
Not all that is possible happens quickly.
Many possibilities become realities over time and with patience. 
Patience IS a virtue.
“Patience, grasshopper," said Maia. "Good things come to those who wait."
"I always thought that was 'Good things come to those who do the wave,'" said Simon. 
"No wonder I've been so confused all my life.” 
(Cassandra Clare, City of Glass)


  1. Truth!

    I also wanted to add that I love your window and that trim! Beautiful!

    1. Why, thank you! (I could wish we had more of a view. Definitely something I think I'd look at better when we buy a different home.)

  2. Your quote brought a smile to my face! Thanks for brightening my day!

  3. I hope you and yours had a very MERRY CHRISTMAS and are having a very HAPPY NEW YEAR. May we display your linked header on our new site directory, SiteHoundSniffs.com? As it is now, the site title (linked back to its home page) is listed, and we think displaying the linked header will attract more attention.

  4. That is a good object lesson, Rebecca! Slow? Indeed. Impossible? No!
    Thank you!
