Gray hairs show years of living. As the book of Proverbs states, “Gray hairs are crowns of glory.” Amazing wisdom they provide. The longer you live; the more you know; the more you have experienced. Listening to our elders pay off! After talking to them, you will realize that there is truly nothing new under the sun! They have most likely experienced or witnessed whatever you are attempting or undergoing. “Bought sense or learned sense” is the optimal catchall phrase. Do you want to learn from others’ experience or do you want to “buy” your sense and try everything yourself? As for me, give me that gray haired wisdom! I love sage advice. I don't mind learning. I have avoided “many a headaches” from those gray headed ones! Older folks have seen a “little bit of this and little bit of that” in their living. Their advice may save you – time and energy, and in some cases … grief! It is not always necessary or prudent to reinvent the wheel or learn the hard way! Call me a copy cat if you will! I prefer to follow the road that has been laid than dig a new one. Once again, I thank those who showed me the way!
