    Make some time to read Brenda's fabulous poetry on her own prompt, "Patience." There is a message inside each of them and to some extent, they carry a sense of humor, which you will love. Here is the link to her article:

    Great work as always on these poems, Brenda. Your message and thoughts are always clear. Excellent videos and images as well. It would try your patience having to wait very long at a medical facility though among possible COVID carriers.
    Thank you for sharing, Rosina.

      Thank you very much.

      I honestly hate going to the doctor's offices right now.

      They never seem to be on schedule & book way too many people at once.

      I try to make sure my work makes some kind of sense, so I'm glad you can see a message in them.

      Thanks again

    I enjoyed reading al of your poems about patience, Brenda, I also the going to the doctor's office, and I have to go much too often. I like your message that God is in control. That is exactly what gets me through the tough times. Thanks for each of your poems.

    Thank you for posting Brenda's article, Rosina.

      Thank you.

      Knowing God is in control definitely helps me, especially in those times I'm about ready to explode.
      I have to remind myself that I cannot make things magically happen.
      Glad you liked my work.

      Take care.

    I enjoyed reading your Poems Brenda. Especially the second one with a tinge of humor in it. Yes I dread going to the doctor's nowadays. The waiting makes us scared of picking the infection.  It helps to believe that when God is in control he will look out for us. Have a great day and week. Thanks Rosina for sharing.

      Thank you.

      One would think the doctor's office would have a better system.
      Maybe let you wait out in car until your turn...like many restaurants do now.
      So glad you enjoyed them & liked that tiny bit of humor.

      Take care.

    Thanks for sharing Rosina.
    I love your poems, Brenda. What stood out for me is the theme of trusting God and the reality of losing it which makes patience so hard. The poem about being in a room with others where you can catch COVID expressed a reality that people can relate to in these times. Beautiful, creative works.

      It's in those times of almost losing my patience that God reminds me of my purpose.

      As for Covid, one would think Dr.'s offices would have a better setup.

      Delighted to know you enjoyed my work.

    Brenda always does a great job with her poems and the ones regarding patience is no exception.  Waiting in doctor's offices is never a favorite place to be, particularly now with Covid still on the rampage.  Blessings to you and Rosina for sharing this with us.

    Brenda has created an interesting article that contains some very good points. The last part describes an important concern. I'm glad she raised it. Though patience is a wonderful ability that should be cultivated, there are a few occasions where it's not appropriate.

    If we can avoid being close to people who may have COVID-19, we should do this. My doctor has taken special precautions to protect the patients who visit his office. Half of the chairs in the waiting room have been removed, people have to ring a bell to get the door to the building unlocked, and the staff give people a new mask if they don't like the one that a person is wearing.

    In an emergency, we need to see a doctor, whether or not precautions are in place. In other situations, if we can reduce the risk of getting sick from the coronavirus and perhaps passing it to others, I think we should.

      Thank you.

      I'm glad to hear your doctor's office is taking precautions.
      I think that's how it should be done.

      Our local Kroger pharmacy has become a covid 19 nightmare.
      For some reason they have the drive thru closed, so people wait in line to pick up prescriptions without any masks & standing right next to one another for like 45 minutes to an hour.

      It's a madhouse.  I'm thinking of switching pharmacies.

      Thanks again.  I'm delighted you read my work.

        The pharmacy situation sounds horrible, Brenda. I have to go to a pharmacy quite often to pick up prescriptions for my sister. Everyone wears masks, and they voluntarily spread out in the lineup. I sometimes have to wait for a short time if the store is busy, but I never have to wait as long as forty-five minutes.

          I'll try to get a picture next time I go to the store.

          I'm not certain what happened, but it's a mess.

          I've heard that one of the pharmacists was selling fake Covid-19 cards & he was busted by an undercover officer in October.

          It's possible more employees were involved, because I was told they needed to hire some new people before the drive thru would open back up.

            I took this picture yesterday showing part of the line. 
            Luckily I wasn't in it.

            Though it wasn't quite as bad as the other day.
