I remember that one of the things that most upset my Nichole, was that she couldn't remember important things in her life. Seizures destroyed her memory. I would constantly retell events, and assure her that these things occurred, but in her own mind, they were not remembered. It was devastating to both of us....We who can remember, no matter how faulty our memories might be, are keepers of the truth as we see it -but so are you. Few memories are sometimes greater than many. And have you ever noticed that memories are more about an emotion than a movie of what transpired? Nichole always remembered her beloved grandmother. While sitting on the deck one evening, we saw two shooting stars - she said " Momma, there's Grandma and Grandpa - they are there to tell me they are waiting for me, in the flower garden." I just looked at her. Wondering where this child had come from.........She died years later, but I knew. I knew . She was with that Grandma and "pappa" in the flower garden.....Memories not so important now, as the love that remains thru all time.......

Thank you for starting Boomer Women Speak. This is a great site. It has been my experience that some people get wiser with age and others don't. I know an 86-year-old and 91-year-old couple I thought had wisdom; then, I discovered they don't. She has been brainwashed. He's a blockhead: stubborn as can be. I thought they were both Christians and discovered it was all a sham. She can't tell the truth. He can't face the truth. In my opinion TRUTH is a core ingredient of Christianity.
What say you?
Should a word to the wise, come from someone with wisdom?

Bonnie, tell us more. Are these poeple close to you? Do they influence your life in any way?

I'm in agreement about truth being the core of Christianity. Truth and faith.
