Children, Precious, Patience

I was at my dentist the other morning and in the waiting room feeling very anxious as usual. I looked up and saw this picture and it made me smile. So true patience is a virtue my Nana use to say. And any child will put you to the test. We live and learn and this little face in this picture I just got a kick out of. The teeth cleaning not so much!

That is a beautiful photo and a lovely caption. My mother used to tell me: Patience is a virtue Possess it if you can Always in a woman Never in a man But she would change the last line to 'never in a teenager'.

The dentist is my least favorite doctor to visit:( Yes, patience is a virtue and having a licensed day-care home helped me learn this lesson, each and every day! Am I a patient person? Not always!

Such a sweet poster and I know how you feel about dentists...I see mine twice a year for a cleaning and I'm glad I do, finally in my old age I am not afraid when I go to the dentist.

This is a lovely photo. I also do not like a lot to go to see my dentist, but I do not stress if it's only for the scheduled bi-annual cleaning.

Nice message and photo. Our attitude can change the outside scenario - it is up to us how we want to perceive life. There should be no regrets or failures; life is always worth living - siva

A little patience goes a long way. As the child seems to be saying good things come to those willing to wait!

Good picture. It works well to put a smile on your face. Sorry it was at the dentist's office and it still didn't help to alleviate the anxious feeling.

You're absolutely right. You need an extra patience to deal with hyper, inquisitive kids.
