Patience is not just about waiting for something…it’s about learning how to wait - by Raquel Santos Soares Menezes
When I was a child, I spent my weekends at my grandfather's farm and one day while we were out to tour the orchard, I looked at the avocados and I said to my aunt, "I want an avocado" and she replied, "But they are green." But I was not satisfied with the answer. I insisted, replying: "But I want them...". Obviously she did not give me green avocados, but she tried to explain to me that there is a time when they would be riper and they would be delicious to eat.
