This week’s mailout is brought to you by the letter P.
This time, we’d like to point out the plethora of pros there are in being a patient person. Not only does patience mean you can take the time out of a paragraph to produce perfect alliterative sentences, it can also get you through a lot of less-than-positive situations. Bex would like to use a personal anecdote to demonstate this.
I have a 4-month old baby sister called Ella and sometimes she cries an awful lot. Anyone who’s been in close proximity to a crying baby knows that its a distressing noise – it has to be, babies need to scream for others as they can’t care for themselves, after all. It does make my house a pretty stressful environment, particularly for my mum who gets little sleep and has to keep on top of day-to-day chores while looking after a noisy Ella. Tonight we watched one of those how-to videos linked in this message about how to cope with a crying baby. One point made a lot of sense. Time passes and things change! The older a child gets, the more independence he or she gains, the less he or she will cry for help. It really is the same with everything. Eventually, situations get better. Life comes in seasons, summer will follow winter and with some patience, everyone can last out the bad times and anticipate the good times to follow. You know that thing you’re worrying about right now? Picture yourself in a month’s time. Chances are, the thing won’t even matter anymore! And then comes patience. It really is a good thing.

To finish, we’d like to invite you to invite your friends, as the numbers are dwindling and that’s something that makes us slightly worried. The fact that so many of you have stuck by us is incredibly nice, and it must mean you like these messages and the group at least a little bit. We do want to share it with as many people as we possibly can though, so if you agree with what we say, share it with your friends! You might just cheer them up that little bit extra.
Bex & Sam.
