Don’t Wait Up!

So much of our lives is wasted in a holding pattern.

When we were babies we waited to be fed and have our diapers changed.  When we went to school we waited for the bus, summer vacation, and Christmas morning. When we were adolescents we waited for the phone to ring and our lives to begin.

As we grow old we realize there is simply more waiting waiting for us.

Waiting for a pot to boil.  Waiting for the toast to pop.  Waiting for the coffee to brew.  Waiting for the game to start.

Waiting for the commercial to end.   Waiting for a meeting to begin.  Waiting for payday.

Waiting for snow to fall.  Waiting for snow to stop falling.  Waiting for the electricity to come back on.

Waiting for the right moment.  Waiting for retirement.

Waiting for an appointment.  Waiting for test results.  Waiting on hold.  Waiting for a prescription to be filled.

Waiting to die.

What are you waiting for?
