Chapter 7, Page 9, Book 09

We older women who know we aren't heroines can offer our younger sisters, at the very least, an honest report of what we have learned and how we have grown

Elizabeth Janeway


I still, on occasion, do some unwise things. I know that it requires making an effort to reach out, grab the opportunities and get the most out of them that we possibly can. Age can bring wisdom if we really work for it. Every day changes do occur and every day it seems I learn something new too.

We cannot remain stagnant in this world of ours. And if we are learning new things all the time it stands to reason that we’ll also find that the way we used to do things isn’t always the best way either.

Still somethings that I’ve learned over the years are things that just are…and will not change. I’ve found that putting your trust in God sure beats worrying your way through a lot of sleepless nights.

I’ve learned that prayers do work and that miracles do happen.

I’ve learned that with God all things are really possible.

Some things just don’t change at all.

I’ll be off to the camper after work so I’m wishing you all a great weekend and as always you will be in my thoughts and in my prayers.


Wisdom doesn't automatically come with old age. Nothing does - except wrinkles. It's true, some wines improve with age. But only if the grapes were good in the first place
