Apples of gold in frames of silver
Sometimes when we hang out with our elders we get a chuckle. We used to love spending time with our MOM.
There was one time in particular when Mom sucked all the chocolate off some nuts we had bought, and then she put the nuts back in the bag. Julie and I did not know she was doing that and continued to eat the chocolate free nuts.... After a bit, our Mom started laughing so hard she couldn't walk or talk. 😳 Imagine our surprise when she told us.
The elderly can be a joy.
They can also share great wisdom with us if we will listen.
A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in frames of silver.
That priceless golden wisdom that is passed down from generation to generation, framed in silver as a remembrance that we share
with our children and their children....
Yes, the young have much to offer and we will listen and take what is good, but do not neglect the precious wisdom from the aged who have seen it all before.
