Virtue of the Week
"Patience and diligence, like faith, remove mountains."-William Penn
Patience is quiet hope and trust, expecting things to turn out all right. Patience is being calm and tolerant when difficult things happen. It means showing acceptance when you or others make mistakes.
Patience is doing something now so that later it will bear fruit, like planting a seed and waiting for it to grow. Patience is a commitment to the future.
Affirmation: I am patient. I am gentle with others and myself when we make mistakes. I wait calmly. I trust that things will turn out.
