I just had a rather nice conversation with someone who is dear to me. She has fought for employment, nearly gave up, then remembered my persistence, carried on and is now fully installed in that position.
and she said, “It was your persistence that made me carry on”
I queried the conversation, ” my persistence, when?”
“With son no.1, two years” she replied.
“Oh yes”, I replied.
Which then made me leak, its the nicest thing that anyone has ever said to me.
