Waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, … to be born.

Waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, … for recess.

Waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, … to get noticed.

Waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, … to get boobs. Got noticed.

Waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, … to find my voice.

Waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, … to birth my child.

Waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, … to birth my second child.

Waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, … for sobriety.

BLINK > children are grown.

Waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, … to publish my book.

Waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, … to publish my next book still afraid.

Waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, … for Covid to end. I want my life back!

Waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, … to publish my next book. Proud.

Waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, … to be able to pay my bills without always looking over my shoulder.

Waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, … to die…Hell no!

Nothing happens in God’s world by mistake. Note to self… listen to this thought and stay in the now.
