Patience ~ From “Hurry Up” To Patience

John, my seven-year-old grandson, came up to me while I stood at the kitchen counter fixing lunch, “Grandma, Eddy (5) needs to learn patience. He tells me to hurry up all the time. I don’t like it.”

“Okay,” I agreed thinking this would be a good thing to teach Eddy because his constant “hurry ups” irritated me too. Learning the virtue of patience would be a good thing to teach a little boy.

Later, I stood at the counter again slicing an apple. Eddy came up and asked for a drink of water.
