In 1936, Mrs. Owen, the teacher in the Bratton Branch one-room schoolhouse, asked her students to write the three things in their notebooks they felt they had learned during their time there that would serve them best in life.
Fern wrote, “I learned to have humility, gratitude, and patience. I think these three virtues will serve me best in life.”
She graduated with perfect grades later that week.
What praiseworthy values are these. Thanks Rosemary for a lovely story.
Humility , Gratitude and patience… the three perfect virtues to lead a fulfilled life.
🙂 I suppose….to some.
