Dehydration Diagnosis Drama

Patience, the virtuous thing

How many times have you been told that patience is a virtue?  I have personally lost count.  Just so I clearly understood what a virtue was I looked it up (just love that I no longer have to pull out an actual dictionary and can go online, what an ingenious invention, but I digress…) and… Continue reading Patience, the virtuous thing
