As you got up this morning, I watched you and hope you would talk to me ,
even if it was just a few words, asking my opinion of thanking me for
something good that happened in your life yesterday – but I noticed you
were busy trying to find the right outfit to put on and wear to work.
I waited again. When you ran around the house getting ready I knew there
would be a minute for you to stop and say hello, but you were too busy. At
one point you had to wait fifteen minutes nothing to do except sit in a
chair. Then I saw you spring to your feet. I thought you wanted to talk to
me but you ran to the phone and called a friend to get the latest gossip.
I watched as you went to work and I waited patiently all day long. With
all your activities I guess you were too busy to say anything to me. I
noticed that before lunch you looked around, maybe you felt embarrassed to
talk to me, that is why you didn’t bow your head. You glanced three or
four tables over and noticed some of your friends talking to me briefly
before they ate, but you didn’t. That’s okay. There is still more time
left, and I have hope that you will talk to me, yet you went home and it
seems as if you had lots of things to do. After a few of them were done
you turned on the TV, I don’t know if you like TV or not, just about
anything goes there & you spent a lot of time each day in front of it, not
thinking about anything – just enjoying the show. I waited patiently again
as you watched the TV and ate your meal but again you didn’t talk to me.
Bedtime…I guess you felt too tired. After you said goodnight to your
family you plopped into bed and fell asleep in no time. That’s okay
because you may not realize that I am always there for you. I’ve got
patience more than you will ever know. I even want to teach you how to be
patient with others as well.
I love you so much that I wait everyday for a nod, prayer or thought or a
thankful part of your heart. It is hard to have a one-sided conversation.
Well you are getting up again and once again I will wait with nothing but
love for you hoping that today you will give me some time. Have a nice day!
