Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 273 – Waiting

img_00411

Patience is not simply the ability to wait – it’s how we behave while we’re waiting.

Joyce Meyer

Thank you, for that pearl of wisdom, Spidey.

Waiting. I think we are all in a permanent state of WAIT right now. We wait, with bated breath, to hear what the next steps will be by governments, with regards to this COVID-19 pandemic.

Our whole lives in the hands of a very tiny percent of the population. We sit tight, when the news is on, with the next announcement. How many new cases? How many deaths? Any positive news? Are things getting better or worse?

Currrently, my specific wait is to hear the definite decision regarding certain Primary School year groups returning to school on the 1st June, which is just over a week away.

I’ve had my fair share of wobbles, and I think you all know that. But, it’s my decision as to how I behave as I wait.

Despite my disagreement with the decision to even contemplate sending the little ones back to school, I am also aware that we have to, at some point, ease back into life as we knew it.

The #NewNormal cannot be our permanent normal, after all.

So, I’ve been in school, stripped back various areas, cordoned off places, given eacy child that I know is due to come back a special space, set of equipment, and a new socially distanced ‘spot’ to sit on when we have carpet time.

We’ve made plans as to how out timetable is going to change, drastically, teaching these ten children that we have possibly coming back, and the twenty whose parents are not willing to send back yet.

Now we are on our official mid term break. and I cannot do anything else, beside wait and worry. I am not going to worry, Decisions are out of my hands right now.

Instead, I am going to think positively. Put the fear out of my mind, as best as I can, and try and relax before the #NewNormal Take 2 launches.

What will be, will be. I have to stay as sensible as I can. It’s the only way.

So… tell me, what part of the next stage of lockdown easing are you waiting for, or dreading?

Have a peaceful Sunday Peeps  And enjoy your week! ❤

June 20: Flash Fiction Challenge – A Wee Wait

Charli’s Carrot Ranch prompt this week:

June 20, 2019, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story about having to wait. Who is waiting and what for? Think about how the wait impacts the character or the story. Go where the prompt leads!

A Wee Wait
“I know you’re desperate dear, but I’m afraid, you’ll have to wait. They’re all desperate.” Mrs Brown turned around, indicating the long line of children stretching to the end of the corridor.
“But Miss, I can’t wait!” Millie hopped from foot to foot, performing a toilet dance typical for a child, crotch clutched as if that was all holding a possible flood from occurring.
The queue moved down one.
“Just get to the back of the line, Millie.”
“I can’t.”
“Why on earth not?”
Millie looked down at the puddle slowly forming.
“Oh dear. so you really couldn’t wait!”

#WritePhoto – Waiting

Sue’s #WritePhoto Prompt this week:

Waiting…
It’s that time again
Waiting…
Can you feel the pain?
Waiting…
Don’t know what you gain
Waiting…
Crying like the rain
Waiting…
Still wrapped in your chains
Waiting…
Yet I can’t refrain
Waiting…
It all starts to drain
Waiting…
Thoughts inside my brain
Waiting…
And you’ve left a stain
But I’m still
Waiting…

This was actually a poem I wrote a couple of years back… I hope you enjoyed it.

waiting

And here is my effort! A limerick trio!

There was a young knight called Ted
Who appeared to have lost his head
Though incomplete
He was always upbeat
Because he was very well bred!

He waited for love to come
But alas for Ted there was none
When it came to a kiss
No head meant a miss
And away the ladies would run!

He tried to keep out of sight
Didn’t want to give people a fright
So he stood in a corner
Like Little Jack Horner
Even though it was rather tight!
