I was invited to a WISDOM PARTY by a fellow girlfriend. Her daughter is turning 21, May 12th and she wanted several different women to impart nuggets of wisdom into her daughter. We were all given a different subject to speak about such as Creativity, Regrets, Forgiveness, Family, Individuality, Order, Compromise, Credit Worthiness, Abuse, Settling, Staying Focused, and many more that I can't recall right now. My topic was Children. Her mother told me she wanted me to speak to her daughter about this topic because she has always been impressed by the relationship that I have with my 2 daughters and the closeness we share.
Everyone was asked to wear all white and there were a few prizes to be won. The food was light, yet very tasty. It reminded be much of an afternoon tea party. Not only did I learn something from each woman that spoke but I thought what a grand idea to do the same for my grand-daughter when she turns 21. The wisdom that was spoken, was stuff that every women needs to hear long before they make bad decisions. There was stuff said that I thought to myself I wish I had known that long before now. Many of the speeches were the person's own testimony and sometimes they were funny, but all had a message to be heard.
So everybody whether you're invited to such a party or not please take the time to impart some knowledge into some young person. As most of us know they don't always hear their parents. I'm of a firm belief that it does take a village to raise a child.
