The buds on the Wetland’s trees are barely sprouting. Next week, I’ll guess, will be when they really burst forth. And already with the allergies this year. It will be quite a switch, from winter allergy meds to spring allergy meds. Stay tuned!
What do you think of when you hear the word “wisdom?” For me, the words of the most incredible song ever: “Let It Be.”
“When I find myself in times of trouble, Mother Mary comes to me,
Speaking words of wisdom, Let it Be.”
Paul McCartney finally revealed the words and sentiment of this song were from a dream of his mother appearing to him with the wise words, “Let It Be.”
I’ve always associated wisdom with older people. They taught us our elders had wisdom from living long and learning as life goes on. I agree with some of that; some people do not become wiser. That is a whole other phrase, but doesn’t refer to wisdom. With families spread so far across the world, some children are not in contact with their grandparents. Sad; they blessed us so much with life lessons and teaching us things like fishing, sewing, gardening, and many other skills.
We learned at their elbow, and we observed them in life situations. We learned how to be good people. Honesty, truth, fairness, and a strong sense of pride in America were the lessons of each day. Now, some families only place value on apps, reality tv, and TikTok videos. Nothing special. Nothing lasting. Nothing worth passing down to the heirs.
The Babe and I went to a nursery today and being near all the dirt, fertilizer, seeds, and bulbs. There is something about the combination of all those scents that gives me hope in the future, the wonder of nature, and joy in seeing what is to come. It’s happening here, and it’s happening now. Enjoy it. Have wonder in it. Take part in it. Enjoy this Sunday, and let’s see each other tomorrow.
