Some Things Learned in Life

...that one of the most fun things you can do is take a walk with a grandkid and a dog.
...that the best classroom in the world is at the feet of an elderly person.
...that just one person saying "You've made my day" makes our day!
...that having a child fall asleep in your arms is one of the most peaceful feelings in the world.
...that being kind is more important than being right.
...that you should never say NO to a gift from a child.
...that sometimes all a person needs is a hand to hold and a heart to understand.
...that it's those small daily happenings, that make life spectacular.
...that even the Lord didn't do it all in one day. So what makes me think I can?
...that when you harbor bitterness, happiness will dock elsewhere.
...that a smile is an inexpensive way to improve your looks.
...that love, not time, heals all wounds.

I found those in a pamphlet that has ideas for church bulletin fillers and I put them in our church bulletin a couple of weeks ago. All but that first one. That's new, one I added as something I've learned on my own but I think most grandparents will agree with me. There's just something about seeing the world fresh through the eyes of a young child. 

What are some that you would add? Things you've learned over the years? How about that life is short and that you really should "stop to smell the roses" along your journey?  
Or that the weatherman is wrong as often as he is right. 
Or that a merry heart really does work good like a medicine just like it says in Proverbs.

Now it's your turn. What are some things you've learned in life?
