Good Boy Waiting (Cee’s Which Way Challenge 2015 Week #11)



Cee’s Which Way Photo Challenge 2015 Week #11

Here is my dog, Pal, patiently waiting to come back up the porch steps to go inside.

Since my yard is unfenced, Pal needs a lead to keep him from accidently wandering off when he is outside by himself. He is a curious Bassett Hound and his nose could lead him astray.

He loves to roam around in the yard and look for sticks. Sometimes he lies facing the neighbor’s house so he can peep into their dining room window. He watches the backyard squirrels and the neighboring dogs. He doesn’t like to be outside by himself for very long; he loves his people! When he wants back in, he barks and we answer his request.

On this evening, he seemed to be enjoying the warmer weather. I captured this photo through the screened glass window of my back door as Pal watched me watch him! He is a good boy!
After he climbed back up the steps, he got a well-deserved treat.

I have noticed Cee’s challenges and decided to join in the fun. I hope it is ok to add my buddy along with the steps theme for the challenge.

Waiting (Park Benches)

Sit down and wait a while
Rest your weary bones

Wait for return of energy
Wait for emotional clarity
Wait for inspiration

Sit down and rest a spell
Your time will come

Ice, Water and Bittersweet Waiting

“If I offer you a glass of water, and bring back a cup of ice, I’m trying to teach you patience. And also that sometimes you get ice with no water, and sometimes you’ll get water with no ice. Ah, but that’s life no?”-Jarod Kintz

How long should we wait? How long is too long to wait?

There are no set rules. I think the easy answer is that we should wait as long as it takes!
We may wait a minute. We may wait a lifetime. But, we all wait. Every single one of us waits for something.

We learn to be more patient. We learn to hold on to hope. We learn about perspective and discover what is really important to us.

We wait when it is impossible not too. We wait because we need to.

The decision to fill our waiting time with the bitterness of impatience or with the sweetness of anticipation is left up to each of us to make.
