I've Learned That...

* * * * * * * * * * *

When I graduated from High School, my Young Womens leaders gave me a book called 'Live and Learn and Pass It On'. I have been reading it again and I just have loved some of the things people tell that they have learned, so I thought I would share a few great ones with all of you.

I've learned that... if someone says something unkind about me, I must live so that no one will believe it. - Age 39

I've learned that... it always makes me feel good to see my parents holding hands. - Age 13

I've learned that... how people treat me is more a reflection of how they see themselves than how they see me. - Age 49

I've learned that... I don't feel my age as long as I focus on my dreams instead of my regrets. - Age 83

I've learned that... joy is often the abillity to be happy in small ways. - Age 72

I've learned that... you can tell a lot about a man by the happiness of his wife and the respect given him by his children. - Age 51

I've learned that... when Mommy and Daddy shout at each other, it scares me. - Age 5

I've learned that... kids need hugs more than they need things.
- Age 43

I've learned that... you can't hide a piece of broccoli in a glass of milk. - Age 7

I've learned that... the more a child feels valued, the better his values will be. - Age 39

We do a "Live and Learn" book (based on your Live and Learn and pass it on book) with Brandon's family every year. Each person makes a page of what they Lived and Learned that year. It's a pain sometimes ;), but it's neat to look back.
