If you haven’t read Lissa’s post on patience, I highly recommend it. I’m putting a link here in case I ever need to find it again. I think it will bear rereading as a reminder. I had lots of “aha” moments as I read. One that stands out is when she talked about her decision to drive cross-country with her kids on her own (rather than have her husband take vacation time to share the driving). I could so relate to the importance of not having that deadline imposed.
