According to Merriam-Webster, a pearl of wisdom is defined as “a wise word or statement; often humorous.” Recently I came across some handwritten words of wisdom from my MaMaw Nina, who passed away in 2012. It inspired me to reach out to family and friends to make a collection of “pearls of wisdom.” The times have changed and the world we live in today is so much more fast-paced and materialistic than it was before when my grandparents and great-grandparents were growing up. I asked my family and friends to share their pearls of wisdom, anything that they think needs to be passed down to the next generation. This is an inspiring post for me and I plan on referring back to it many times, but I really want to be able to pass this along to my boys when they get older. I hope you find some of these pearls, inspiring, uplifting, helpful, and maybe even funny. Life was slower and so much more simple, even just 10 years ago. My hope is these little gems will help you slow down a bit and take a moment to learn something new or be inspired. Keep On Reading!
