Wisdom astray

Sitting here thinking about some things that I do each day and I ask now which direction do I want to go at this time?  I need to learn a new word for the 10 minutes that it will remain in my head.  I have found that if I do not use the word it will fall to the ground and in the dust it will be hard to again locate and use.  Kind of like money, one is better off to keep it put up and then one can not use it for unnecessary things.  But to be human is just that, we once had our chance and we fail the test of trust so we continue to be paying for the decision once made long ago.

Once years ago, I was given some great wisdom but I was young and misguided by others that I did not use the wisdom in the right way.  My granddaddy and uncles told me when I went into the military to conserve, that I would have 3 meals a day, clothes to wear, a place to live and sleep, and a job to do, therefore, I should put my money away for a rainy day and let it grow.  I was 18, therefore, young and knew all that I needed to know.  I find today that I was also stupid, yes I did learn a lot but not the good of wisdom.  I think them for their effort and I have missed the ability to tell them how I feel now about what they told me.
