Wisdom of Our Elders

BY: RuthW

Bless the Nanas of the world,
the Pop-Pops, the Gramps,
who show us how to knit, how to fish,
how to find a good mood
even when their sciatica kicks in.

Secretly holding the world together,
they don't compete
with whoever the Joneses might be,
and teach that kindness
is love on a slow drip.

Release that spirit in me today.

Help me to emulate them:
Slow boiling point,
Story at the ready,
Candy and kind word in pocket.

Very few things in life are so aptly named.
There's a reason we call them "grand."

Today's Spiritual Quote
For Christians and Muslims the great mystery is the fall: of human kind, but also of the angels. The great fall of the most beautiful angel, the lieutenant of the heavenly hosts: Lucifer. But Lucifer, as far as we know, is irredeemable; he is doomed for all eternity. Human beings, on the other hand, can pay for their sins, can change the fall into flight. end quote
