The Waiting Place...

...for people just waiting.
Waiting for a train to go
or a bus to come, or a plane to go
or the mail to come, or the rain to go
or the phone to ring, or the snow to snow
or waiting around for a Yes or No
or waiting for their hair to grow.
Everyone is just waiting.

Waiting for the fish to bite
or waiting for wind to fly a kite
or waiting around for Friday night
or waiting, perhaps, for their Uncle Jake
or a pot to boil, or a Better Break
or a string of pearls, or a pair of pants
or a wig with curls, or Another Chance.
Everyone is just waiting. - Dr. Suess

Today we are waiting for the snow to snow. You can see this morning the ground is bare...but school has been cancelled so we are hopeful! Daddy is home sleeping, and Pillsbury Orange Sweet Rolls are in the oven... its a good day for waiting...and perhaps for reading "Oh the Places You'll Go."
