Someone waits for you

The feeling that someone is waiting for us can work miracles in our lives. We all need someone to wait for us. When you return home from a long and difficult journey, you are happy at the thought your family and your friends will be waiting for your arrival. You want to share your experiences of pain, hardships and exhilaration with someone who stayed home and awaiting your return.

The soldier who is posted in difficult boarder areas and in constant danger, keeps his mental and physical health intact in spite of serious threats to both because, he knows his wife and children and all his friends are waiting for him.

One spouse wait for the other to return home after a long span of time engaged in his duties.An elderly father and mother wait for their son to come from a faraway place before they give up the struggle and die. Their waiting gives them life and hope.

We are fortunate if there is at least one person waiting for us. That awareness gives joy in living and a fresh lease of life when there seems to be no other reason to carry on.

Thousands of people give up hope and commit suicide or just fade away and die because there is no one to light up their lives. They do not know of anyone waiting for them. So then it hardly matters if they have a tomorrow or not.

Waiting, of course is not limited to a brief period of time. It may span many years of one’s life. It may be for someone to change his ways and grow. Perhaps the most beautiful example of waiting is parents waiting hopefully for their children to grow.

They watch them as they grow, confident that the little ones will one day become big. They know they can trust their children to grow in their own ways and that they need not be overprotected and insured against all insecurities. They know that their children’s lives and their hope in them will blossom to their fullness and their waiting will not be futile.

If our waiting for others can produce dramatic and lasting results, we have considerable power for good in the lives of others. We can make gratitude to those who have loved us and waited for us that we in turn can wait for others and promote their growth and well-being.
