Pearls of Wisdom

We got these fantastic new frames in...we love the pearls....
plus they look great with old family pictures in them!
They reminded us of this poem by Becky Netherland
we found a while back....Enjoy!

Grandma's Pearls of Wisdom
To My Granddaughter...
I’ve traveled paths you’ve yet to walk
Learned lessons old and new
And now this wisdom of my life
I am blessed to share with you
Let kindness spread like sunshine
Embrace those who are sad
Respect their dignity, give them joy
And leave them feeling glad
Forgive those who might hurt you
And though you have your pride
Listen closely to their viewpoint
Try to see the other side
Walk softly when you’re angry
Try not to take offense
Invoke your sense of humor
Laughter’s power is immense!
Express what you are feeling
Your beliefs you should uphold
Don’t shy away from what is right
Be courageous and be bold
Keep hope right in your pocket
It will guide you day by day
Take it out when it is needed
When it’s near, you’ll find a way
Remember friends and family
Of which you are a precious part
Love deeply and love truly
Give freely from your heart
The world is far from perfect
There’s conflict and there’s strife
But you still can make a difference
By how you live your life
And so I’m very blessed to know
The wonders you will do
Because you are my granddaughter
And I believe in you

We adore this poem...it sounds like something
our grandmother's would have passed along to us!

By the way...
aren't those two little girls on the left just adorable???
Ya...we think so too :)

Enjoy your Monday!
