I was recently waiting for my mum and MIL in front of a woman’s shop while they were shopping. Amelia was eating ice cream in the shopping trolley and I was just standing there talking to her and we joked about “those grandmas” who took forever to browse. While we were there, I started to noticed the few older gentlemen who were also standing around the front of the shop. They were just patiently standing and people watching, while waiting for their wives who presumably also in the same shop as my mum and MIL.

It was kinda a lovely sight. This screams long marriage and true love. When I posted this on my IG, someone commented ‘Love and patience are very close friends”. I shall remember that quote and remind myself this every time I feel like I am started to lose it with my husband.
