wisdom from an elder… corner view

Hello! how are you all? Long time no type, huh?

Things are good, work is crazy, the baby is getting more teeth, I am healthy, the sun is shining outside and it is still light out when I get home from work!
so good.

This week’s corner view challenge is, “wisdom from an elder”. I instantly thought of this photo that I snapped at my best friend’s wedding. She and her sweets got hitched at a fancy little spot in Maui 2 years ago (really, 2?). This adorable couple who were at the hotel where the reception was being held came over to Em and handed her this drink coaster- I love the words and the special gift from a stranger….
random well wishes

it reads,

Wisdom gained from 51 years-
Forgive quickly
Hug deeply
Kiss slowly
Love truly

I sorta get all teary eyed just reading it…

For more corner view, head to Jane’s

    What a perfect message, and from strangers no less. It’s perfect. I can’t say more. I’m going to write it down and post it on my fridge.
