Since Mom’s cancer diagnosis last year, I’ve had to learn the art of waiting.
Waiting to make appointments. Waiting for the appointments. Waiting in exam and waiting rooms.
Waiting, waiting, waiting.
I’m not a natural at this. I don’t stand in lines. I can’t bear waiting for my number to be called. I’m not patient. There is always something better to do.
So thank goodness for knitting! I can knit standing up in a line at the pharmacy. Sitting. You name it.
It helps to knit something that doesn’t require following a pattern or chart. I’ve been knitting new samples using Phydeaux yarns. So perfect.
This year will involve even more waiting. Which I will happily do – I love my mom beyond belief. But I’m also getting better at making sure that there’s always a project in my purse. Just in case. I’ve learned that when it comes to waiting, it’s best to be prepared.
