We all learn from experience and know that every year we somehow become wiser than the last year. Simply said, with age comes wisdom. Too often, though, we overlook the valuable life lessons our grandparents have learned over the years. Give your family the priceless gift of your grandparents wisdom.
Take advantage of this loving and valuable resource and collect their life lessons for the family to know. Without a doubt, your grandparents will be overjoyed to pass on their pearls of wisdom!
Start by asking your grandparents to think of the most important life lessons they’ve learned. Give them time to pull their thoughts together – perhaps a week. Request a specific quantity to give them a goal – five might be a manageable number although let them know that more would certainly be welcome. Finally, ask them to describe the experience/s that brought about the life lesson so others can understand how it applies to day to day life.
When they present their list, regardless of how cliche an answer might seem, it’s important recognize that their wisdom was learned through experience and simply a Hallmark card. In other words, give each lesson the consideration and respect it deserves.
Collect these life lessons in a small book along with a short biography would make a wonderful family gift at Thanksgiving or Christmas. Or, if you have a family website, post the life lessons to a page devoted to family wisdom or that grandparent.
