What I Have Learned

Monday, February 19, 2018

I Have Learned that…

… the best classroom in the world is at the feet of an elderly person.

… when you’re in love, it shows.

… just one person saying to me, “You’ve made my day!” makes my day.

… having a child fall asleep in your arms is one of the most peaceful feelings in the world.

… being kind is more important than being right.

… you should never say no to a gift from a child.

… I can always pray for someone when I don’t have the strength to help him in some other way.

… no matter how serious your life requires you to be, everyone needs a friend to act goofy with.

… sometimes all a person needs is a hand to hold and a heart to understand.

… simple walks with my father around the block on summer nights when I was a child did wonders for me as an adult.

… life is like a roll of toilet paper. The closer it gets to the end, the faster it goes.

… we should be glad God doesn’t give us everything we ask for.

… money doesn’t buy class.

… it’s those small daily happenings that make life so spectacular.

… under everyone’s hard shell is someone who wants to be appreciated and loved.

… the Lord didn’t do it all in one day. What makes me think I can?

… to ignore the facts does not change the facts.

… when you plan to get even with someone, you are only letting that person continue to hurt you.

… love, not time, heals all wounds.

… the easiest way for me to grow as a person is to surround myself with people smarter than I am.

… everyone you meet deserves to be greeted with a smile.

… there’s nothing sweeter than sleeping with your babies and feeling their breath on your cheeks.

… no one is perfect until you fall in love with them.

… life is tough, but I’m tougher.

… opportunities are never lost; someone will take the ones you miss.

… when you harbor bitterness, happiness will dock elsewhere.

… I wish I could have told my Dad that I love him one more time before he passed away.

… one should keep his words both soft and tender, because tomorrow he may have to eat them.

… a smile is an inexpensive way to improve your looks.

… I can’t choose how I feel, but I can choose what I do about it.

… when your newly born grandchild holds your little finger in his little fist, that you’re hooked for life.

… everyone wants to live on top of the mountain, but all the happiness and growth occurs while you’re climbing it.

… it is best to give advice in only two circumstances; when it is requested and when it is a life-threatening situation.

… the less time I have to work with, the more things I get done.
