D-Day | Tim Lai-Smith

Today when I went to collect my new #glasses, I was invited to take a seat while the #staff attended to the #people before me.

While I was waiting, a lady of 91 years slowly sat down next to me. It was not long until a conversation kicked off, firstly about the weather, and then being the 6th June, D-Day soon came up. The lady did most of the talking and I just listened as she gave me her #story (which I expect would have gone to present day had the staff not called her to fit her glasses). As she continued, I lost track of all the #names and their #relationship to the lady, but I could tell she held them in #memory, very close to her heart.

It is funny to hear a 91-year-old refer to someone else as a ‘dear old lady’.

As we parted ways, she wished me a good day and I returned the wishes. Then as she walked away, with her frame for support I thought of some of her story and the #soldiers who #bravely fought those years ago.

Why not take the time to listen to someone today?
