One hundred and seventy one


Patience is a virtue, I know.
I've never had much of it.
Learning to use an underwater camera,
helping my son with paper mache,
watching our gimpy red chicken recover...
This week these things needed time.
Good things do come to those
who wait...or to those who 
are too stubborn to give up.

Linking in with Six word Fridays

I am enchanted by the masks!! And I'm with you...I'm much more of the too stubborn to give up than I am loaded with the virtue of patience! I do think, though, that patience and perseverance are close cousins...so we should get a little credit for our persevering side!!

Great job with the masks!!!!
So, should I purchase an underwater camera? Looks like you're getting some great shots!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

I love that you were able to write something so great in a day :) I think you are right about the relationship between patience and not giving up. Patience is quiet, steady perseverance - continuously.

I do like the ending comment - that sometimes good things come to those who are too stubborn to give up!
