This book is dedicated to all of us who struggle with waiting on things to go our way, to be first, to truly believe there is a reason for the wait. Waiting can make time move in slow motion causing boredom and worry. But what if we learn to trust that everything has its own special timing? We might actually see huge blessings that only come from waiting. Spend the day with Thunder and see if he can win the Waiting Battle.
