a story in every life

recently, it has been a great pleasure getting to know an older couple as friends of the family. They have been a great encouragement and have shown a genuine interest in our lives and we have shared some great stories whilst eating some feasts together.
As you start talking it is fascinating to hear stories from many years ago and the work in which they were involved, all the way back to their experiences of WW2 and being evacuated from london for safety. In listening to their stories, I have found a greater respect for their shared wisdom as they give support and advice in my own situation.
how many people do we see each day with great stories to tell and a lifetime of wisdom to share…..if we would only listen.
