Through the rain

At Tea Talk we briefly share how we are feeling and what we are thinking. Visit Ruth @ Celebrate Friendship for more

I’m having Oishi black lemon tea.

My glass is a company-issued one I seldom use. It’s been hibernating in a drawer for years.  The sun is blazing hot outside and my fridge has ran out of my first drink choice this afternoon – cold water, so both glass and tea came in handy.

I’m feeling a bit impatient.  The Eagles concert is sold out but a student of mine whose company promoted the Deftones last week offered to help get me a ticket. I’m waiting for her to call back.

Wait, wonder, hope…

On my mind is patience or at least the illusion of it.  I practice the virtue by planning what I am going to do if I do not get what I want, like watching one of my favorite bands live. If I missed the Eagles what would I do…

Eat?… Read?… Have another go at golf this weekend?….

Think?… of what?… I had been busy communicating with my son’s psychologist and occupational therapist, arranging therapy sessions I forgot to book my seat at Impact Arena for Sunday. Ah well, I will make up for it some way, somehow. In other words I am coping.

    Patience is not a virtue I can claim. But with the kitchen remodeling we are doing I am learning to persevere. Hoping you hear from your friend and the ticket is yours. Wishing you well! Cathy

      You had me googling virtue. But no, I am not changing how I see things right now. Patience is virtue to me and under the circumstances I am in it certainly is. I am aware though that patience could be many things to others.

  2. Love to have you join Vintage Thingie Thursday. Got me to getting stored things out and either using them or getting rid of somethings. Even found so things I thought were lost. Good luck with tickets for the game. I am a staunch Kentucky Wildcat fan. I bleed blue.

      I should be serious about getting a scanner soon. I am flying home in a few weeks’ time and there are several antique pieces gathering dust in there. I look forward to joining VTT.

    Hazel, I like your glass; so pretty. I would love some warmth up here in the Midwest! So enjoy your sun. My thoughts are with you as you continue to search for and work with all those professionals.

    Thank you, Christine. I’m sending sunshine your way 🙂

    I love the Eagles! I hope you get to see them in concert!
    As for patience, it helps me when I think, that rather than waiting on “something”…I am waiting on “Someone”…namely, the Lord…to see what He will do…somehow, for me, this makes the waiting easier…as I do not mind waiting on my King so much!

    Hi Hazel,
    Greetings from Hongkong!
    Before we left Bangkok, our local secretary asked us if we wanted to watch the concert because she could easily book for us for free. She’s got friends working in the radio stations promoting the concert. She’s so crazy about it. We also would love to go but we are on this trip. You have a good reason why you forgot to book for this concert. Still, I hope you get what you want, and if not, at least you have that beautiful virtue of patience formed in times of waiting.
    Have a wonderful weekend.

    Thank you, Ruth. I actually got in. A couple of hours after writing this Tea Talk post, my student rang. Her husband talked with guys at ThaiticketMajor. It does pay to have good connections 🙂
