Wisdom can be found in places you wouldn’t expect, like Dr. Suess books and nursery rhymes.
As I sat to write this blog, I stumbled upon a picture of the words to a nursery rhyme most of us have heard over and over.
When I read it today, the sing-song lyrics played between my ears differently than I remembered as a kid.
It went from a simple childhood memory to a meaningful message in an instant.
Row, row, row your boat
Gently down the stream
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily
Life is but a dream
Rowing the boat represents the repetition of life and all we do; I’m reminding myself to do so gently and happily because life is fleeting.
I’m grateful I’ll never hear that one the same again.
