3 Word Sunday

It's all just a matter of time... 27 months of living the good life in the LID world of The Wait.

Please, Please...hold the applause. Thank you, thank you each and everyone.

:-) Some things are just best spoken with a smile. The Wait requires trying your best to keep things in their proper perspective or as Johnny would say, "suck it up". Which is pretty darn good advice when making your way through The Wait because it's not like we're doing something that others haven't or aren't experiencing. And the simple truth is: We don't control The Wait but that doesn't mean we should let The Wait control us. Do we think about it often? Gee, I don't know, how about EVERY day... It's just that you can't put everything else on hold.

Don't cheat yourself out of living today by dreaming only of your tomorrows. Life is good. The Wait sucks. Now go enjoy Today...

Love your 'tude... hang in there. I gotta say it seems like you guys went from 2yr to 27 fast. Have these last 3 months flown for you? Or is it just me?

Very well said, Ford. Happy 27th! You guys are so, so close and I'm right behind you.

You are so right about not letting The Wait control us, and I wish I could live by that all the time. Sometimes that's a real struggle though.

Hangin' in there with you.

Of course it's easy for me to say that when I am no longer waiting for referral.

well said, my friend! :)

I'm still trying new hobbies and keeping as "sane" as possible while the wait continues.

CONGRATS on 27!!!!

T&W said...

You said it!!!Sometimes I can't believe it's been 27 months. Then there are those days you feel like you've been waiting forever. But we don't need to let this time just go by. We need to live each day to it's fullest!
Thanks for the pep talk!!!

Indeed, live life. Still, I feel for you because the closer we get the harder the wait becomes(to me).
