Wait a Little While

So, Kenny Loggins, you ask? Why would I start my blog with him? Most of you who know me would have NO idea that I am one of his biggest fans. It started in college when I dated, yes, a boy in a band (my second, actually). I was a "bubble gummer" through high school, but matured in my taste of music while attending Mesa Community College to enjoy the sweeter music in life, thanks to whats-his-name. I saw Kenny in concert three times during my years at BYU, once sitting in the THIRD row, and have seen him at least twice here on the East Coast with my sweet husband (I am sure Richard is NOT too happy that my first post is about Kenny.... sorry, Honey). Kenny is my favorite; I love him. (Disclaimer - I however DO disagree with most of his political views, but that is a subject for another time...).

There is a method to my madness, however. The title of my blog is from lyrics to one of his songs entitled, " Wait a Little While". You can read the lyrics by clicking here.

My favorite part of the song, and significant part for my life is this:

Wait a little while to welcome what you're after
Give it the time to find its way to you
And soon as you no longer try, you'll turn and find it standing by your side
Come and get it, when you let it, it'll come to you

I am not by nature a patient person. Anyone surprised? Ha ha. I have struggled with that my whole life, and worked to improve. So, I dedicate this blog to talking about patience, impatience, and lessons learned. OK, so I may throw in some photos of my kids, pets, and decorating tips. But generally, that will be my desire.

Aren't you just dying for more? Well, just wait a little while....


  1. Wahoo!! I got to be the 'first' dot on the map! So glad you got yourself up and running...I can't wait to read more...of course kenny loggins is a bit before my time ;) so thanks for sharing the lyrics! BTW...I am waiting for pics of Leslie's room redo!!

  2. Yay! My first dot, how appropriate to be from you, my blogger teacher. I'll work on those photos....sometime soon.

  3. Yea, I am SO excited!! You are right, I feel like I know you well and I had NO IDEA you were such a Kenny Loggins fan!! Can't wait to read more...

  4. Yippee! I was wondering when you were going to start your own blog. Did you ever find those cookies? Michael says that you can get them at Royal Farm and Giant.

  5. Nope - no cookies yet! But tomorrow is another day, my dear!

  6. I am so excited for your new blog. I am glad Richard was promoting it on his blog. I didn't know you were a Loggins fan. Although I do not own any of his CD's...I do like him a lot. I really like the Loggins and Messina songs.

    Selena...I think you would be surprised at how many Kenny Loggins songs you actually know. Do you remember the Poison song "Your Mama Don't Dance and Your Daddy Don't Rock and Roll"? Kenny Loggins wrote it and sang it in the 70's. "Danger Zone" Top Gun, "Footloose", etc.

  7. Emily, thanks for cluing Selena in - she LOVES to rub in that she is wayyyy younger than me!! Yes, I adore Kenny - I can't deny. Richard is pretty blatant, huh? Such a funny man.... HUGS to you!


A little note from you? Thanks!
