Learning From Motor Man

Thursday is Mama Kat’s Writing Workshop day. My prompt today is:

5.) Something I could stand to learn from my significant other.

Motor Man has taught me many things in our years together. He taught me confidence to drive on the interstate. (Country girls don’t learn to drive on the interstate.)

He taught me to not be so easily intimidated.

He has taught me to find something to laugh at everyday. And no, it isn’t ALWAYS him.

But the one thing that I still could learn from him is patience.  He has to be one of the most patient men on earth. He takes me shopping, and never complains -regardless of how long I’m gone.

He’s patient with restaurant servers, and when we have to wait at doctors’ appointments.  He’s patient with store clerks. He’s patient in slow-moving traffic. He’s patient when I work on my blog or make cards late into the night.

I guess at times I try his patience. But you’d never know it.
