Patience is not just about waiting, it's the ability to have the right attitude while waiting.

I really wish they would put out more commercials & billboards. I had no values until I saw them.

Just saw the "Patience" commercial with the little boy walking in the concrete. Reminds me of how I need to be when working with my students. haha Loved it!

I see alot of your commercials on our AFN channels. My favorite one is the little boy walking in the freshly smoothed concrete and the fella at the end. It makes me laugh and smile each and everytime I see it. Thank you.
