Admit your age and learn from time
Our road in life can lead us through many side roads. Over many stones. Some which may make us fall , stumble and roll over. It is all a learning trail, a trail that leads to the end of our road, but a path, an opening, a thought for others.
We are by nature, natural teachers, through our example, our Love, our Faith and our caring attitudes. It all comes deep from within and sometimes takes years to realize we are trying to teach loved ones.
As the years add up, which they do so quickly, we as an individual may finally see what life really is about,some too late or some when very young just get it earlier then others! Bless those sweet souls.
Things are just things, actions speak louder then words, you can say anything you want...but what you do is what really counts, your example, your actions, your words, gentle or harse, your understanding, your FAITH, your encouragment, and it goes on and on, which you are totally in control of . Though you may not think about what matters, or counts, or anyone pays attention to, you have a bigger effect on others then you even will imagine.
Kind soft words, a smile, words of gratitude, a pray, a phone call, a letter, a Birthday card, a Get Well note, a HI on the Internet ...we are all connected to each other one way or another.
Famlies are now seperated by miles, though we can be connected by the modern ways these days, it is just not the same as being personal, with a hand written note. I am guilty of sending e-cards for Birthdays, Holidays and well wishes, but do attempt to hand write occasionally...seems a lost art any more.
So try to remember unless you have walked a mile in someone elses shoes, felt the pain they have encountered, you need to have mercy and pray for others. "What goes around, comes around", and the end comes way sooner then one ever thinks.
My Mom @92 died 3 months ago and she is still teaching me today...I have come to see the things that the elderly try to teach , that Faith is important, and Love from your heart only ...:O) Hugs G-Ma
