To Have Known Then What I Know Now

What a wonderful concept.  Wisdom with out having to live throuth though times to get it.

Why do you think when we are young we don't want to hear what our elders try to teach us?  As I look back on my own life and as I raised my children I often wondered about this.

Our lives would be so much easier if we would only take the time to know that what the older generation around us already knew would keep us from so much pain and hurt.  But it doesn't happen that way.

Yes, as I've looked back there are several things that if I had known then what I know now would have saved me a lot of tears.  Yet, it was through those tears I became stronger and built my faith.  Maybe that is why with age comes wisdom.

yes, that is true, I've had some like that in my life as well. But the one's that weren't that way are the one's I'm talking about.
