Listen Up ... This Elderly Woman Has Something Important To Say
They always say that with age comes wisdom, and this poem, written and recited by 92-year-old Wanda B. Goines, is absolute proof. When Kate Wilson, Goines' caretaker, heard "The Gift Wrap & The Jewel," she knew she needed to share.
The entire is filled with sage advice and clever points about the journey of life each of us take. Our outer appearances change, but they're only a covering, just like gift wrap. What's inside, our minds, souls, hearts, are what really matter. This "jewel," Goines points out, only becomes more precious and refined as time goes on. While our gift wrap becomes withered and torn with age, our spirits do the exact opposite. Well said, Wanda, well said!
