Lessons Learned

  • Age 6:    I’ve learned that you can’t hide a piece of broccoli in a glass of milk.
  • Age 9:    I’ve learned that when I wave to people in the country, they stop what they are doing and wave back.
  • Age 12:  I’ve learned that just when I get my room the way I like it, Mom makes me clean it up.
  • Age 25:  I’ve learned that wherever I go, the world’s worst drivers have followed me there. 
  • Age 30:  I’ve learned that if someone says something unkind about me, I must live so that no one will believe it.
  • Age 40: I’ve learned that motel mattresses are better on the side away from the  phone. 
  • Age 50:  I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way they handle these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights.
  • Age 60:  I’ve learned that making a living is not the same thing as making a life.
  • Age 70:  I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands.  You need to be able to throw something back.
  • Age 80:  I’ve learned that even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one. 
  • Age 90:  I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn.
