When I think of inspiring greatness in others I am often inspired by something I see on Facebook or other websites or while I’m researching. A friend of mine posted this on her Facebook a little while ago.

It is so true that in our North American society we have forgotten to truly respect and honour the elderly and their wisdom. My mother is someone I respect and have deep gratitude for. She has weathered the storms of life and come through. It is sad that she does not see or value her wisdom since it did not come from a university degree. I often wish I had the kind of wisdom she has… Maybe some day.

This is dedicated to the many wise women who have touched my life, some no longer on this earth plane. They are/were loved, appreciated and honoured.
