You can find serenity in realizing that you can learn things from an old spouse and I learned, “never let them see you sweat.” I am one of those women who tells old wives’ tales. I tell them because I am an old wife. I have been happily married for more than 23 years. This means I have an old husband who has been trying to teach me things for many years.
Darren has been telling me things for a long time. I mean we met when I was 19 years old many, many years ago. A lot of what he tells me goes in the left ear and out the right or in the right ear and out the left. Sometimes though, he says something to me goes in and stays. Those precious words find a home and stay to keep me company. This year I learned, really learned, “never let them see you sweat.”
