I came across this photo of this elderly woman and I instantly fell in love with it. I stared at it for a couple of minutes as my mind saluted her.
She’s beautiful. The lines crossing her face are lines of wisdom, lines of beauty, lines of life.
I admire elderly women. I think what I can gather from them by spending just one day with them is much more than I can ever gather from spending 1 year with a young person. It’s the depth of their experiences, the depth of their wisdom, the depth of their maturity.
“Those who respect the elderly pave their own road toward success.” – (African proverb)
