Waiting is the worst. For me “patience” is one of those cringey words, trumped by few others, save vulnerability, change, and humility. But patience is definitely up there. I’m learning everyday to grow in patience while working as a nanny for two young children, but I have a current struggle with patience in waiting to get married. In my case, Dylan and I have been dating for a little over 2 years (this time around). Some friends would say 6 years… Basically, it’s been a long time coming and I’m just ready for happily ever after!

I remember vividly as a ten-year-old, sitting in the back of my mother’s minivan after a day at school and a great gymnastics practice, eating sonic or some other deliciously greasy fast food, and saying to her: “Mom, I want something, but I just don’t know what.” I had this ache in my chest for something more, even though I was living the suburban dream.
