Always a learning experience

I have learned that you can't judge a person by their lifestyle - you don't know where they have been or what they have gone through to get them where they are today. I have learned that God really knew what He was talking about when He said "be still and know that I am God". I love to be still. I have learned that kisses really do make some of the pain go away. I have learned that my family will always be irreplaceable in my heart. I have learned that true love lets you be who you are 100% of the time. I have learned that sugar-coating my words hurts more in the end. I have learned that not everybody follows my schedule. Surprisingly enough, that one took awhile to learn! I have learned that laughter really is the best medicine and a hug between friends is priceless. I have learned that a phone conversation with mom is a treasure. I have learned that ice cream and chocolate truly are therapeutic. I have learned that going out of your way to help others is essential in life. I have learned the importance of knowing how to drop everything and be there. I have learned the joy of keeping a childlike spirit. I have learned the freedom that comes with dancing in the rain. I have learned that life goes by too quickly. I have learned to breathe in the moments. I have learned that children are always a blessing, whether coming to you with cheery hugs and kisses or a screaming temper tantrum. I have learned that my nieces and nephews know far more about true faith than I do. I have learned that I don't have all of the answers. I have learned the importance of trusting God. I have learned that it's okay to be scared once in awhile. I have learned the necessity of always telling people how much I love them. I have learned to live life passionately. I have learned to follow some of my spontaneous whims. I have learned to ignore the irresponsible ones! The best thing, however, is that I have learned that I still have so much to learn ....
