The Waiting Game

Today we wait. I wait for news. I won't expect any news until tonight at least, but I know that I ought to hear news tonight. So I wait.

I'm cleaning house today. Then I go to work. I'm doing things. Keeping busy. And waiting.

We wait. We pray. We trust. We hope. And we keep busy. Like to get a nap in, too, but don't know if I will have time.

Right now, my kids are fighting. They didn't think the job assignment was fair. So they are all in their rooms for a time to calm down before we begin again. Today it is hard for me to have patience with them, patience with their grumbling and fighting because my mind is not on it. My mind is waiting. Waiting for news.

Flying solo is not difficult at all. It is not hard to manage the home on my own. What is harder is just the waiting. Hoping everything will go ok.

So I wait. And keep busy.
