Where is the Wisdom ?

Today Lauren got her Wisdom teeth out. Jeff was off work, so both of us went with her and patiently waited. I tell you there is something  hard for Mom's to see your kids have to go into surgery or be in pain... I don't like it!  I would much rather it be me...actually ... it usually has been! :)  She did quite well, she was very quiet and just rested most of the day. When our oldest son had his out, he was quite funny and saying all kinds of crazy things. Interesting to see how the medicine reacts differently with each kid. But they were alike as far as the time went, both were up and feeling better by evening. I was very grateful for that.

I heard it mentioned once..."Why is it that the wisdom teeth wait to come in, long after the tooth fairy has stopped coming by your house to leave change under your pillow? :) I am wondering that myself?

So tonight my blog of course, will be about WISDOM, I hope you enjoy it! Night!

The Wise Woman
by Author Unknown

A wise woman who was traveling in the mountains found a precious stone in a stream.

The next day she met another traveler who was hungry, and the wise woman opened her bag to share her food. The hungry traveler saw the precious stone and asked the woman to give it to him. She did so without hesitation.

The traveler left, rejoicing in his good fortune. He knew the stone was worth enough to give him security for a lifetime.

But, a few days later, he came back to return the stone to the wise woman. "I've been thinking," he said. "I know how valuable this stone is, but I give it back in the hope that you can give me something even more precious. Give me what you have within you that enabled you to give me this stone."

Sometimes it's not the wealth you have
what's inside you that others need.

"Wisdom outweighs any wealth."  ~Sophocles
