Just Wait ~ Are You Kidding ME?!?

We've all been there at some point in our lives ~ you are waiting with great expectation ~ staring at the phone ~ willing it to ring! Anytime this century would be just fine with me!

Please ~ don't leave be hanging here ~ I don't know how much longer I can hang on ~ the frog in the picture empathizes with me ~

I called TCI over a week ago ~ left my contact a message that I wanted to go ahead and schedule the tethered cord surgery. What's that? Can you hear the deafening silence on the other end of the phone ~ nothing ~ no acknowledgment phone call. I know that they are super busy, but right now, I could use a healthy dosage of validation. I feel as if I have gone on a rappelling excursion. I have leaned back ~ parallel to the ground ~ I am totally trusting the rope ~ I have taken that first, terrifying step off the ledge ~ and now they tell me to hang on a minute. SERIOUSLY?!!

The Bible mentions 'waiting' many times ~ here are a few verses:
Psalms 27:14 Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.

Isaiah 40:31
But those who wait on the LORD will find new strength. They will fly high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.

And so ~ I wait for a call from TCI ~ and hope that after all of this time I have spent waiting ~ I will still be of good courage and have found new strength ~

You are so much more patient that I. I know I would have called to followup on my followup on my followup message by now.

May your rope stay strong!

I'm with futurefoodtvstar. The Bible doesn't say anything about waiting on the Insurance Company...
