Owl Wise...

"A wise old owl sat on an oak;
The more he saw the less he spoke;
The less he spoke the more he heard;
Why aren't we like that wise old bird?"


Ah.... the simplicity and truth of acquired wisdom...

As I get older, I find myself becoming a better listener.
Maybe I'm becoming a little more wise :)

I adore that quote, and I've seen it on another friend's blog. I wanted to use it someday because it reminds me of my daughter, Nel, who is working on her Ph.D. right now. Happy Thanksgiving, my sweet friend. I am so thankful for you this year.

I do too much talking - so this was a perfect thing from me to read. It is so true.
Have a beautiful Thanksgiving.~~

About Me

My photo
I have always been inspired by my Grandfather's particular generosity and encouragement, along with his love for others and nature. His spirit lives on, and the influence is quietly with me as I write and share. This is my small offering that I pray will bless others and allow them to become Simply Inspired. warmly, karen -xok.
Each day provides its own gifts.
