Happy and Profitable Waiting

Perhaps the most difficult task that we have to face in these days when loved ones are often far away is that of waiting patiently. It does not matter how long the period may be or how unavoidable the cause, human nature is always impatient of delay or forced waiting.

To one who has served for many months at home and abroad in the armed forces, this necessity of waiting was the first and most important lesson to be learned. In the services, where so many men and women have to be fed, clothed, equipped, and billeted, waiting in queues, in squads, and in various units cannot be avoided even with the very best organization. And this business of waiting is no less a problem on the home front, where rationing, transport problems, and so forth, make it necessary for one to take one's turn. But what a difference there is in facing these situations when one's thoughts are uplifted and serene.
