Patience

I am not a patient person. There I said it. I'm pretty much the opposite of patient. I get frustrated waiting in line, waiting for a response to an email, waiting for grades, waiting for the bus, or pretty much waiting for anything. I like things done on my time and in the way I want them to be done. For me it is a day to day struggle; and I'm certain it will be a life long struggle for me to try to be patient. Morgan and I often say that "God is testing me" because the more frustrated I get the longer I seems to have to wait, and the more obstacles there are in the way. I know this, yet, its very very hard for me to accept a situation and let it play out.

With that being said, I'm trying really really hard to be patient right now. To wait for Henry to be ready to come out. I've already waited 38 weeks and 5 days. I can wait the 9 more days (till his due date) or the two-ish weeks until we would induce. Right?! Well I pray every night that God gives me the patience to wait, I know this is my biggest struggle. Last night did not make it any easier. I had constant contractions for about 6.5 hours. They got to be between 3-5 minutes apart. But then as soon as my hope was up that we were finally.done.waiting. the contractions completely stopped. Bam, hopes dashed. Back to waiting. I need some extra patience today...
