Two instances that show the grandmother’s patience are:
- Even when sparrows perched on her head as she fed them, she displayed remarkable restraint, never once shooing them away.
- She did not become upset when the author went abroad for higher education. She accepted the decision in a calm and composed manner.
- Her disappointment was evident when she realized that the city school’s curriculum lacked lessons on God and the scriptures. Yet, in her characteristic way, she chose to remain silent, allowing her emotions to remain unspoken.
