Being patient is having the ability to wait, to endure, and to remain calm even when it seems you’ve been waiting forever.

It’s true when they say ‘patience is a virtue’. My father always used to tell me in the Welsh language: “Cadw mi gey – Keep and you shall have.” He was trying to tell me that if I waited patiently for my surprises instead of ransacking the house to find the gifts, then I would reap the benefits of expectancy, of anticipation, and so prolonging the pleasure.  So true, Dad!
