The merry widow

I gave up medical practice for some years in order to be a loving mother to my children and devoted housewife to my GP husband in Germany. During our time there it often happened that people would visit me bearing small gifts and expressing great admiration for my husband, myself and my beautiful children. Over time I came to understand that these were often people my husband was helping out with difficulties.
