P is for Patience in Marriage

55 Fiction

He could count the tick-tocks of the clock.

He could watch his fingers tap dance on the banister.

Or slow down his racing, rising heart.

But then he realized long ago that it’s best to idle the motor than rev up the engine.

Because, some things never change.

Like his wife getting ready on time.

A Word to the Wise

What good has impatience ever brought? It has only served as the mother of mistakes and the father of irritation. ― Steve Maraboli

  1. Aha πŸ™‚ That’s a funny take,because we women are always mistaken as ‘not being ready on time ‘ πŸ˜€ But we know we’ve to look good when we go out with the hubby dears πŸ™‚
    Well, patient pays a lot, especially in marriage πŸ™‚

  2. In my marriage I am always left waiting on my husband…he is the one who has to rush to the bathroom one more time, do this or do that, while the kids and I wait in the car wondering what in the world he is doing and why he doesn’t hurry up. LOL β™₯

  3. Interesting post. I say wives through their simple action of taking a bit longer to get ready actually help their husbands learn and practice this important virtue of patience. Otherwise how would they learn? πŸ™‚ We do it for their own good πŸ™‚

  4. I thought I had a lot of patience… but this picture thought in the end making me rethink. I get very anxious when things happen in a different order in which I had thought them to happen. Hmm!

  5. Shilpa,

    Visiting after a couple of days. Caught up from N to P. So true, unless you Nurture each other to Overcome problems together with Patience how can you expect happiness?

    Take care

  6. True…but I get wild when people don’t get ready on time….luckily my partner has very good time sense..:) but right..patience is needed..every where…..hey, thanks for the tag dear….just seeing it..ahhh I get it… P for Prudhvi Latha πŸ˜›

  7. Ha ha ha…it’s just the opposite at my place. we’ll all get ready and wait for the man while he decides whether this tee or that, whether this watch or that. πŸ˜€
