Patience

Why am I being so impatient? so eager to run away?

Not a thing nor place I need to attend to, except

right here, right now.

The context: I was talking with my mom.

I belong to the sandwich generation.   Not an excuse,

just an observation.

I am better (aka more patient) relating to my kids and

their predicaments.

Not so with my mom.  Even though

I know one day I will be in her shoes.

      Exactly my point, Tom. We can relate to our children because we have been there (as you see your son’s progression).

      My mom is in her mid-eighties. She can’t hear well. Her body aches. And her memory is fading. Without having been in her shoes, I try to understand her but get impatient at times.

      Thanks for your comment.
