It’s not my strong suit. I asked Nohemie why she is a carer. ‘I want to learn patience. I never know if someone will need to be patient with me.’ Not the answer I expected.

With Phil on a trip, I was helped by what is called an aid in the U.S. 

Patience. I find it a huge challenge, and people are endlessly patient with me.

What is going on? I have a Haitian aid speaking creole and French.

Good to feel the warm sun.

One thought on “Patience”

  1. You’re not alone Knolly – patience is a virtue my parents used to tell me whenever I got frustrated. Your post reminds me that there are some amazing kind people in the world – something else we forget too easily when confronted daily in the news with just details of just the evilness that goes on. The recent terrible flooding in Cumbria has brought about some great acts of kindness and friendship – we should all learn from these examples. Enjoy your trip my friend!
