Isn’t it crazy what parts of our childhoods stick with us? When Grete was growing up, she was given a record (I think it was a group called Music Machine) that had little “Christianey” songs for kids on it. One of the songs had a snail singing about patience.
That was a long time ago. But it’s a song I hear often. She kindly reminds me to “have patience, have patience, don’t be in such a hurry…”
Well, last night I was singing it to her, and she insisted I was singing it wrong. So, after a quick Google search, she found a recording of it. For the first time I heard the original.
You can hear it here. Honestly, the voice is a little creepy. I don’t know if I’d have wanted that voice in my head as an elementary schooler…
