God, Please Give Me Patience

God, please, please give me patience.

Give me patience to deal with my father-in-law who just blamed me for erasing Sk.ype on his laptop by unplugging it from the power supply. Apparently I am to blame for every technological problem in his home. Yes, I am that powerful.

Give me patience to wait for yet another call-back from the nurses at PPVI. I did speak to a nurse yesterday after two days of waiting, but now she has to ask Dr. Hilgers some specific questions. I would really love my dosage of T3 before the weekend. I know that this is out of my control, but I'm still so impatient!

Give me patience with myself. I have been feeling so anxious about going back to work on Monday. I got a call from the school board office yesterday regarding my return to work. I have to call them today and I would love to say that I can't return, but that isn't an option. I wish I didn't have to go back to work, but my leave is done and I have no physical reason to stay home.

Give me patience with my IF. I am so done with being IF. I want to be a mom RIGHT NOW. I don't think I need to elaborate.

Please God, please give me patience. Just a bit more so I can get through this day.

p.s. Yes Cl.omid, I am mad at you.

  3. I totally understand your dread of going back to work. Let's hope and pray that this is your last year. Ugh, I don't blame you for being impatient. I hate waiting for returned phone calls.

  6. Patience is the hardest thing in the world...I am so impatient that I have to pray not be full of rage...that is how bad my impatience gets.
    PRAYING!!!!

  7. If FIL keeps it up, just remember magnets will most likely erase his hard drive. Terrible of me to think of a way to get even for his accusations but he should think before he blames.

  10. I hope today gets easier for you, that you get your phone call, and that the return to work on Monday will be good. Often it is worse just thinking about it, and when we get there we remember the good bits about being at work. I hope it will work that way for you anyway!

  12. I am intrigued by TCIE's deal. I no longer ask for patience - I figure I've had enough opportunities in that vein and it would be more productive just to ask for what I want - but at this point I should probably just ask for the death of hope.

    Hmm, that sounds more depressing than I meant it to be. How about this: I hope you get your T3. I also hope I get my HCG shots, because they were supposed to be delivered in today's mail and it doesn't look like they were...sigh. Well, a small prayer for timely medicine, since the prayers not to need medicine don't seem to be getting through.

  13. Wow - TCIE is way more powerful than you! You can only just cause technological problems...TCIE can supply patience!! I'd say that's pretty much worth the most expensive bottle of wine you can find! Ha! :)

    You will be in my prayers as you get ready to head back to work and that IF is ancient history very soon (is that possible...ancient and soon at the same time?!?! - Maybe TCIE can help with that too - ha!). :)

  14. Ugh...if only patience could be bought in pill like form...I'd sell it and be a millionaire!!! ;)

    Praying for you sweet friend!

  15. Praying for you today. Patience is a tough thing especially when you have that impending going-back-to-work feeling. Serenity now!!!!

  16. Going back to work may help you with keeping you busy and not concentrating on IF so much..right? I know when I'm at work I barely have time to think about anything but what the kids are doing.

    Praying you won't have to wait much longer JB!

  17. Ugh! Patience. It seems like such a good virtue, but it's so dang HARD! Btw, wouldn't it be so cool if you DID have the power to screw up computers? People would be at the mercy of you. :-)
    Praying for patience.
