I had a revelation tonight!

Or...another lesson I learned from my kids...

This evening Bella asked for Daniel Tiger and some bread.  In the time it took me to put her down and turn on the TV, she had asked again for bread.  In the time it took me to select her show, she had asked for bread three more times.  "I know you want bread.  Just a minute," resulted in her asking two more times.

And then my realization came!  He knows!  He knows what I want.  He knows what I've been asking for.  He gets it.  Stop asking and just wait!  It's not that He's saying no.  It's just that some things just take some time.

Can you imagine my epitaph?  Here lies Shelly, the most impatient mortal to walk the Earth :)
