Learning Patience at Lunch

Description (Dublin Core)

This is a picture of the Chick-fil-a drive-thru in North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. In an effort to abide by social distancing rules, I avoided going out to public places for the past two weeks but needed a small reprieve from isolation and went to get lunch on April 18, 2020. While the restaurant is usually very busy, I had never seen it this busy. The line wrapped around the building and out into the road into the turning lane leading to their parking lot. Although I am not a traditionally patient person, I realized that everyone was going through a similar experience and we were all in search or some sense of normalcy, or at least a chicken sandwich. I learned to be patient that day and appreciate the fact that Chick-fil-a was open when many places are not. Patience is something I think we have all learned in this process and I found it ironic that a fast food restaurant could teach me something I have struggled with almost thirty years. Taking the time to be appreciative of what we do have is far less exhausting than focusing on what we are without.
