I Salute and Honor Women who are our Elders. Women who have fought and paved the way for our younger women, They are full of Wisdom, They are women who have weathered the storms of life. They did whatever they had to do in order to put food on the table to feed their family.
A Wise Woman knows how to cook a meal from scratch. She knows how to stretch a dollar bill to feed her children. Whether she is married or a single woman, she works hard to keep her home running smoothly.
A Wise Woman builds her house. She cleans homes if she has to in order to feed her household. A Wise Woman learns discipline. She admits her mistakes and learns from them. She is patient, she takes instructions humbly. She can handle rejection and failure but she never gives up on moving forward for she has to pave the way for the next generation.
Whenever you see the Elderly, our Senior Citizens; Help them whenever you can. Talk to them and learn from them. They have much to tell you if you will listen to such advice. I am now a Great Grandmother and boy do I have a lot to share about my past experiences.
It has been through many trials, test, persecutions, and pain endured but the determination to become more than a conqueror. I teach my children, grandchildren of 15, and now my Great Granddaughter wisdom. Learn from someone else's mistakes so you don't have to go down the same pathway.
Be slow to anger. Think before you speak. Learn to be patient. Have faith in yourself and your God. Life is a School of Lessons. Learn what it is that you were created to do and get to doing. Time is something that you can never get back, so save yourself from wasting precious time by trying your best to make wise choices.
Watch the company that you surround yourself with. Don't be so easy to follow behind the crowd, but use your own brain that God gave you to follow your dream and vision. For without a vision the people will perish for lack of knowledge.
Stay in School. Get a good education. Get a job and learn how to save a few dollars. Have something to show for what you did with your money other than buying clothes, shoes and entertainment.
Like Dr. Maya Angelou said: If you don't like something, change it. If you can;t change it, change your attitude. There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside of you. My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive, and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style. I adored Dr, Angelou and I miss her so very much.
