Gray hairs show years of living. As Proverbs state, “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! Try it! 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 dont mind learning. I have avoided “many a headaches” from those gray headed ones! My Mother has seen a “little bit of this and little bit of that” in ninety years. Her advice often saves me – time and energy, and in some cases … grief! It is not necessary or prudent to reinvent the wheel or learn the hard way! Call me a copy cat if you will!
