~Are You Too Busy~
As you got up this morning, I watched you, and hoped
you would talk to me, even if it was just a few words...
asking my opinion or thanking me for something good that happened
in your life yesterday. But I noticed you were busy, trying
to find the right outfit to wear. When you ran around the house
getting ready, I knew there would be a few minutes for you
to stop and say hello, but you were too busy.
At one point you had to wait, fifteen minutes with
nothing to do except sit in a chair.
Then I saw you spring to your feet. I thought you wanted
to talk to me but you ran to the phone and called a friend
to get the latest gossip instead.
I watched patiently all day long. With all your activities, I guess you were too busy to say
anything to me. I noticed that before lunch you looked around,
maybe you felt embarrassed to talk to me, that is why
you did not bow your head. You glanced three or four tables over
and you noticed some of your friends talking to me briefly
before they ate, but you didn't.
That is okay...there is still more time left,
and I hope you will talk to me yet.
You went home and it seems as if you had lots of things to do.
After a few of them were done, you turned on the TV.
I don't know if you like TV or not, just about anything
goes there and you spend a lot of time each day
in front of it, not thinking about anything,
just enjoying the shows.
I waited patiently again as you watched the TV and ate your meal
but again you did not talk to me.
Bedtime I guess you felt too tired.
After you said goodnight to your family, you plopped into bed
and fell asleep in no time. That's okay because
you may not realize that I am always there for you.
I have got patience...more than you will ever know...
I even want to teach you how to be patient with others as well.
I love you so much that I wait everyday for a nod, prayer or thought
or a thankful part of your heart.
It is hard to have a one-sided conversation...
Well, you are getting up once again...
And ONCE again I will wait, with nothing but love for you.
Hoping that today you will give me some time......Have a Nice Day!!!!
