I've Learned 2

I’ve Learned 2


I've learned....
         that the best classroom in the world
         is at the feet of an elderly person.
I've learned....
         that when you're in love, it shows.
I've learned....
         that just one person saying to me,
         "You've made my day!" makes my day.
I've learned....
         that I feel better about myself when
         I make others feel better about themselves.
I've learned....
         that having a child fall asleep in your
         arms is one of the most peaceful
         feelings in the world.
I've learned....
         that what we have done for ourselves
         alone dies with us. What we have done
         for others and the world remains and
         is immortal.
I've learned....
         that one sincere apology is worth more
         than all the roses money can buy.
I've learned....
         that words harshly spoken are as difficult
         to retrieve as feathers in a gale.
I've learned....
         that being kind is more important than
         being right.
I've learned....
         that you should never say no to a
         gift from a child.
I've learned....
         that I can always pray for someone when
         I don't have the strength to help him
         in some other way.
I've learned....
         that no matter how serious your life
         requires you to be, everyone needs a
         friend to act goofy with.
I've learned....
         that sometimes all a person needs is a

         hand to hold and a heart to understand.
