Learning From Others



“Be grateful for whoever comes, because each has been sent as a guide from beyond.” 
 ~ Rumi




The lessons we learn from people who we least expect it from, can be our greatest teachers.




Unexpected lessons learned, from the most unexpected people.


And for that, I am grateful

Life is full of lovely surprises indeed, Jess, including those who open our eyes a little more each day!

Your blog is as beautiful as even and I should be spending more time here than on Facebook!

Warmest wishes,

Stephanie

A lovely thoughtful post. And I love the picture of the little person enjoying the conkers. Much of the same is going on here.
