Learning is an unending process, definitely. Dad showed me a full form grid many years ago.
L stood for life, that it is never too late or too early to learn anything in life. I want to learn so many things, god! Hope they don’t decline admissions stating you need to be of a certain tender age, like airlines do when they hire fresh faces for their hospitality department.
I is for interest for the subject or whatever we intend/want to learn.
F means faith, first in yourself, then in God and then, in others around you.
E is the enterprise that sustains process and all that goes on in the wheel of fortune.
I learned how to hold my temper when I was sent to kindergarten to teach.
I learned to be patient when Mom was bedridden for weeks after a fall.
I learned that it is just a fraction that decides life from death and death from life.
I learned that miracles do happen and sometimes don’t when grandma did not wake from the operation table.
I learned that disobedience is costly. It nearly cost my brother’s life.
I learned that it is easier to forgive than not to forget. I have lost a couple friends.
I learned to pray when there was no hope and yes, I was comforted.
I learned to be fair when your best friends who are guys go out with their girlfriends.
I learned to smile and accommodate when my girlfriends had dates to attend.
I learned to be OK when you are dumped like a hot potato when something came up.
I learned being loving makes you stronger.
On the lighter side…
I learned that
I can never belly-dance, just can’tL
I am a disaster with crying babies, I panic K
I cannot build sand castles,
I cannot fly kites,
I cannot play carom,
I cannot play marbles with that skill to break them in one shot.
I cannot shoot balloons at a fair, my aim is so awfully bad!
