At this time of year we can often spend a lot of time waiting in line.

At the shops, at the movies, at a theme park.

We stand and we wait, as we edge slowly closer to the front of the queue.

What happens while you wait?

Do you huff and puff and complain about how long it’s taking?

Do you check your social media and respond to a couple of trivial texts?

Or do you share your excitement with the people around you, eagerly awaiting the end of your wait?

How we wait says a lot about us.

We can complain, we can waste time, or we can find a way to make others feel better.

Of course, the same can be said for how we spend our time at work, or our families, or virtually anything else that we do.
