Be patient as things unfold in your life.

I love mangos. As a little boy in my birthplace, Iruekpen, Nigeria, I used to impatiently check on mango seeds that I planted a few days before to check whether they have germinated and grown into tall trees bearing sweet mango fruits. I later learned that sowing and reaping require hard work and tremendous patience. It doesn't happen overnight. 

Wise gardeners know that digging up seeds every few days disrupts the germination, growth, and reproduction of plants. 

Let's be patient as things unfold in our favor.
