Thank You For Helping Me In Getting More Patient

The workers, though kind and willing, are not really organised though, hopping from one balcony to the next. Right now four balconies out of six are being worked on at the same time.
To be honest, I had to 'talk' to myself several times aleady not to complain about this, and today one of my neighbours, an 80 year old lady, started complaining - first to me, then to one of the workers.
I am glad I was able to listen to her without starting to complain myself or belitteling her problems. At the beginning I thought, well, she usually is at home all the time, while I have to juggle appointments and reschedule them. But fortunately I could understand that the uncertainty for her seems to be almost overwhelming, her quiet day is being interrupted, that probably is scary.
Not too long ago I may have not taken the time to try to see it through her eyes. Glad I am getting better at this - and thanks to all of you who are giving me good examples and remind me that it is important and worth every little effort to grow in this area.
