Lifestyle

Patience Please Patience is not something someone is born with. It is an acquired skill, and not one that everyone learns. I still have to exercise my patience everyday, as a mother, wife, and human being on planet earth. I remember my parents saying “Patience is a Virtue” and never knowing what they meant. What […]
