“The sea does not reward those who are too anxious, too greedy, or too impatient. To dig for treasures shows not only impatience and greed, but lack of faith. Patience, patience, patience, is what the sea teaches. Patience and faith. One should lie empty, open, choiceless as a beach—waiting for a gift from the sea.”

Kim, I love this sweet little poem. It reminds me of you. The ever patient one. Waiting, waiting to feel better, waiting and hoping they will find better medicines and cures possibly so that you can have your old life back. or just waiting to have a good day amongst the not so good! You are an inspiration my dear friend. I love you, lets get together this next week if time allows. With Love, Cyndi
