There's a lesson in there somewhere

This is a short week – the week of Thanksgiving and as I was contemplating themes – what I had scheduled and then what I wanted to share for our three days – it came to my mind to share quotes around wisdom.  This is something I continually seek and something I’m grateful for – that our lives bring wisdom when we seek that and not just experiences.

Calvin Coolidge once said this: “Knowledge comes, but wisdom lingers. It may not be difficult to store up in the mind a vast quantity of facts within a comparatively short time, but the ability to form judgments requires the severe discipline of hard work and the tempering heat of experience and maturity.”

What I have found to be true is that experience and maturity matter – of course I didn’t think that when I was inexperienced and immature! As life has provided me with many lessons – some of which seemed harsher than I would have liked – I have grown to know that regardless of what happens to me or around me or to others – there is a lesson in there somewhere. It takes wisdom to dig deep enough to learn it sometimes and in that we are blessed.

This week I am deeply thankful for all the lessons, adversities and experiences I’ve had – I’m also deeply grateful some of them (my most painful) are memories!
