In Galatians, Paul tells us what the fruits of the spirit are. Patience is one of them. It is something we grow into over time. It's not something we are born with, as I'm sure anyone who is a parent will agree with. LOL.

Being patient as a mama has been very hard for me. I struggle with it every day. Sometimes I just want to scream and run away. I never do, but I want to. What has helped me is to just think of my mothering experience like swimming in the ocean. (I've never actually swam in the ocean, so I am only using my imagination here.) Waves come and they go. Some waves will be bigger than others, but there is a peaceful end. In the words of "Dory", "Just keep swimming." and we will all reach that end, that peace we all seek.
