It’s that time of year again. Birds are singing, flowers are growing, sun is shining (and kicking butt, if you’re in the south) and there are a new group of engaged couples.

Are you bored with your job? Are you daunted by future decades in the office or following a company standard? Do you feel called to religious vocation, yet don’t understand how it fits in the modern world? Are you made for more than the life you know?

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!
