Friday Two Cents: Good Things Come To Those Who Wait


Patience: the capacity to accept or tolerate delay, trouble, or suffering without getting angry or upset.
“Patience and time do more than strength or passion.” Jean de La Fontaine


This has been a week where I have seen a culmination of many different adventures in my life.

Firstly, I just finished my two-week block of practicum and man am I tired. It was the peak of a journey started in August and now, with the block done, my first steps to getting my teaching license are behind me. I still have 3 more weeks of going in two days a week but the biggest hurdle is behind me.

After two years I finally got my Degree

The other great news I received today came in an envelope. I received my undergrad degree, BAS of Early Childhood Education from Guelph University. After two long years of blood, sweat and sleepless nights I have my degree in my hand.

Then to top it all off, I went to my workplace and put together my Christmas town / train set for the school. It is a collection of plaster and porcelain buildings, some I made others I bought; yet I hand painted every one of the 53 pieces in the display. I also have a HO scale train with a steam engine and passenger rail cars circa 1900 – 1920.   For me this is usually one of the first decorations I put out for the Christmas holidays. I love Christmas and this wonderful sign means Christmas is just around the corner.

All of this happened today and it has just made my heart take fight and I am truly happy. I wish everyone in the world could be this happy. All of my patience and sacrifice has paid off. I guess it is true about what they say; Good Things Come To Those Who Wait.
