I like to think that over a lifetime, the wisdom we have gleaned has been specific for every one of us.  Perhaps, because we will need those “pearls of wisdom” to guide us at different times and places, and in various circumstances. I have come to know that we meet every person for a reason, and many times it is to learn.  Treasure those experiences for they become our seeds of strength and greatness.  As a mighty oak tree, these seeds will keep growing and expanding if we let them.  In turn, the wisdom we have learned and lived well, will one day take root in others we meet along the way.
