Mother’s Learn, Too
This week, my mother called around 10 one morning to chat for a minute and catch up. During our conversation, I realized that she was still in her bed, waiting for an aide to help into a wheelchair. My mom said, in passing, that she was trying to be patient, as there were quite a few other people in the long-term care facility where she is living who need help, and that it doesn’t help to be impatient.
Yes, she is right, but how often are we impatient? For me, the answer is usually several times per day, and more often with myself than with others.
