Welcome to Mama's Merrill's blog, where you will find bits and pieces of wisdom for life I pick up along the way. I hope it blesses you somehow.
When my Grandfather was nearing 90, he was once asked what he had learned most in his 90 years. He paused, then said, "I've learned I never knew as much as I thought I did."
I'm always on a quest to learn, but not just to learn for the sake of knowledge itself. After all, nobody likes a know-it-all and the point of learning isn't ever to think we've "arrived". I want to always be willing to grow deep in wisdom and live my life to the fullest- whether in be in marriage, friendship, parenting, running a business, homeschooling, or health. We only get one chance at this.
I'm certainly no expert in any one of these areas. But, by being willing to learn new things, take risks, be vulnerable and transparent- we grow, joy grows, gratitude grows. I don't want to ever stop learning and growing! Life is meant to be lived and enjoyed!
Whatever path you find yourself on in in this season of life, I hope you find some encouragement and inspiration here. I'd love to walk next to you for a bit, and let's learn something from each other.
~Ashley (aka Mama) Merrill
