Too busy

As you got up this morning, I watched you, and hoped you would
talk to me, even if it was just a few words, asking my opinion
or thanking me for something good that happened in your life
yesterday. But I noticed you were too busy,
trying to find the right outfit to wear.

When you ran around the house getting ready, I knew there would
be a few minutes for you to stop and say hello,
but you were to busy.

At one point you had to wait, fifteen minutes with nothing
to do except sit in a chair. Then I saw you spring to
your feet. I thought you wanted to talk to me out
you ran to the phone and called a friend to get the latest
gossip instead. I watched patiently all day long.

With all your activities I guess you were too busy to say
anything to me. I noticed that before lunch you looked
around, maybe you felt embarrassed to talk
to me, that is why you didn't bow your head. You glanced
three or four tables over and you noticed some of
your friends talking to me briefly before they ate,
but you didn't. That's okay.

There is still more time left, and I hope that you will
talk to me yet. You went home and it seems as if you
had lots of things to do. After a few of them were done,
you turned on the TV.

I don't know if you like TV or not, just about anything
goes there and you spend a lot of time each day in
front of it not thinking about anything, just enjoying
the show.

I waited patiently again as you watched the TV and ate
your meal, but again you didn't talk to me.

Bedtime-I guess you felt too tired. After you said
goodnight to your family you plopped into bed and
fell asleep in no time.

That's okay because you may not realize that I am always
there for you. I've got patience, more than you will
ever know. I even want to teach you how to be patient
with others as well. I love you so much that I wait
everyday for a nod, prayer or thought or a thankful
part of your heart. It is hard to
have a one-sided conversation.

Well, you are getting up once again.
And once again I will wait, with nothing but love for you.
Hoping that today you will
give me some time. Have a nice day!

Your friend,
