Wisdom and Knowledge
Maybe that's why I like to teach - give crochet lessons to others. I've been crocheting for over 40 years and have made so many things. I made King Size Bedspreads, couch sized blankets, many hats, baby hats and blankets, and so much more. I have 2 items in the works right now (a couch blanket and a lap blanket).
When I learned that the Red Cross in Kettering, Ohio needed red hats, I sent them a box of them. When I learned that the preemies in the NICU unit at Kettering Hospital needed baby blankets and hats, I sent them boxes (3 times). When I learned that a group of women Cancer patients needed hats, I donated some I had made. Giving to others - it is so fulfilling and satisfying - just to make someone smile.
"Though an inheritance of acres may be bequeathed, an inheritance of knowledge and wisdom cannot." The well-educated can share their knowledge and the elderly can share both knowledge and wisdom. Listen, for you will learn much.
Note: Colors don't show up well, but the above blanket is scarlet and grey for OSU.
