Patience is a Virtue

Category: Musings by Sharon

Hi Dear Pals. What’s cookin’? Hope not much its 12:18 am ¬†when I write this.

I realized in the last few days that patience isn’t one of my talents.

My friend Carolyn and I got Charmed Aroma candles for a treat for our birthdays.

If you don’t know what they are let me tell you. You¬†purchase a¬†candle on line¬†and hidden inside is a ring in tin foil. The ring is worth anywhere from $5 I believe and up to a few thousand. You receive a little code and you excitingly put it in and wait for¬†the value of your buried treasure. Kind of¬†¬†like gambling in the form of candles.

They were delivered to my house and I thought ok she gets first pick because otherwise its not fair. I tell you though I didn’t see Carolyn for a good week and I really wanted to get out my spoon and dig those suckers¬†out!

That’s when I realized that I’m not patient at all.

Maybe another clue is that I can’t be bothered to scratch scratchy tickets. I just scratch the code and put it under the machine. Really I’m going to sit there rubbing off little letters. Ain’t happening?

Both our rings¬†are pretty. Carolyn’s was worth $20 and mine was $50. Really if I saw them in the store I wouldn’t buy them and I’m not that fond of candles but the whole “rig a ma roll” or should I say “ring a ma roll” was pretty exciting.

OK I did dig mine out a bit early with tweezers but it was still fun. I’ll put a picture on my Psychic Cottage Instagram.

Quote for you:

“The wise man does not lay up his own¬†treasures. The more he gives to others, the more he has for his own.‚ÄĚ ¬†Lao Tzu

Until we meet again, Sharon
