Dr. Seuss wisdom (day 26)

A dear friend sent this to me in an email today.

"Waiting for a train to go or a bus to come, or a plane to go or the mail to come, or the rain to go or the phone to ring, or the snow to snow or waiting around for a Yes or No or waiting for their hair to grow. Everyone is just waiting. Waiting for the fish to bite or waiting for wind to fly a kite or waiting around for Friday night or waiting, perhaps, for their Uncle Jake or a pot to boil, or a Better Break or a string of pearls, or a pair of pants or a wig with curls, or Another Chance. Everyone is just waiting." ~ Dr. Seuss (Oh, The Places You'll Go)

She reminded me that everyone is waiting for something, whether you are starting a new adventure or in the same place, you can't escape it.  I don't know if it is the teacher in me, or the mommy-reader-of-all-things-Dr.Seuss in me, but this rhyming reminder was very encouraging.

So what are you waiting for today? Feel free to share.
