Teachable Spirit...

This weekend I spoke to a number of my children,
When I say children, I mean those I gave birth to,
But also, those who God has placed in my path,
Not sure why this was a weekend of so much reaching out to me,
But for it I am grateful and a bit tired,
Grateful, because for whatever reason it has been decided that I have something,
To pass on,
But tiring because I finally figured out what was up,
Why some get it and do,
And why others don’t,
One needs a TEACHABLE SPIRIT,
When I was growing up, I sat at the feet of my elders,
My mom, grandma, godmother and aunts,
Allowing all they knew to rain down on me like holy water,
Understanding that though times had changed,
Basics things like, love, patience, tolerance, forgiveness,
Never went out of style, I was open to being taught,
And when I look at all my children, I see the same,
There are those who are doing awesome,
Others are doing well,
Some are doing okay,
And some are well, stuck,
And to a one, I realize that the ones who are doing the best were,
TEACHABLE,
They were like sponges, just soaking up all those who had gone before them,
Had to offer, while changing the game with their own individuality and knowing,
When the time came they, too, would have something to teach…
Oh my goodness,
That gives me great hope for the future,
Because that means that all things are renewable,
Fixable and possible,
Thank God for teachable spirits!

I learned one of the greatest lesson at a point in my life when I wasn't looking for a lesson...just a way to be certain of my happiness. I was easily taught because I was and is always open to learning new things.

Teachable Spirits live happier lives.

Jen,
you are right about it! We do indeed, because to not be teachable means we already know it all...and we know that ain't so...

Bless You!

You know what---we're never too old to learn something. I think we all could use that same "teachable spirit."

Sister Shelia,
you are right about it, I am glad my spirit is still open to being taught, learning begins at the cradle and ends at the grave...

Blessings!
