To My Granddaughter Grandma's Pearls of Wisdom

Saw this poem and wanted to share it with you all it's a great thought and fits the holiday season we are in right now.

To My Granddaughter…


Pearls of Wisdom

By Becky Netherland

I've traveled paths you've yet to walk

Learned lessons old and new

And now this wisdom of my life

I'm 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 life 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
