The Time in Between - Tenth Daughter of Memory

The time in between

If you think about times when you need a lot of patience, consider these:

…the time between getting pregnant and delivering the baby…

…the time between when you start high school and graduate from high school…

…the time between putting an offer on a house and it’s accepted…

…the time between getting engaged and getting married…

…the time between the start of the work day and the end of the work day…

…the time between putting the turkey for Thanksgiving in the oven and when it’s done…

…the time between Christmas Eve and Christmas morning (especially when you are a kid!)

…the time between discovery of a potential health issue and the actual diagnosis…

…the time between one paycheck and the next…

…the time between foreplay and orgasm…

Now, I’m sure everyone has their own ideas for when patience is needed…care to share?

Great post!

How about... The time between when you plan a trip and when you actually get to leave!

And then the time from when vacation starts to when it ends!

Good examples — How bout samplings of the eternal present where spontaneity forgets the construct of yesterday and tomorrow.

How about.. waiting a year for your favourite rose to flower again?

The time in between exhales, the time in between smiles, the time in between falling in love and being loved... Lovely ponderings...
