Patience My Friend

I’ve been needing this message. Funny that in two weeks, this post’ll be year old.

Enjoy this today, be blessed!

The Hopemade Woman

Just a friendly reminder to be patient:

Patience is preparation.

Patience is understanding.

Patience is savoring life.

Patience is the virtue most forgotten.

Patience, my friend.
