For me, it's a man named Joseph, who's a close friend of our family. I've known him for around 18 years, and I can always count on him to listen to me, and then to give me the soundest advice. How long have you known 'your wise person,' and do they still impart their wisdom to you, to this day?

My Dad is the wisest person I know , He will be 90 next February and he has Alzheimer's now but he still remembers everything that happened years ago , He doesn't drive now but when we go out in my car he tels us stories about so many places he has been and he tels us them over and over as if it were the first time ans we listen and answer him as if it were the first time too , xx

You're one of several here, weemam, who consider their dad to be the wisest person they've known. I think this is very special, and it's also wonderful that you show your dad such great respect, by listening to his stories over and over again.:) Thanks for sharing this.

My Grandma - always has been! She is very forgetful now and gets a bit confused but she is 83 years old after all so that is only natural! lol I hope she will be around for many more years to give me good advice and keep me on the right track! xxx

Hi mummymo, It's wonderful that you've got such a special relationship with your grandma, and that she gives you such good advice. I didn't get the chance to know my grandparents, but have some 'older' friends now, that I 'borrow,' and they're great. Thanks for your response.

It's a great tribute to your parents, cmsk2005, and it shows how much you appreciate them. I like the way you've put it, that it's not just because of 'who' they are, but because of the way they've lived their lives. Thanks for sharing.

I have an online friend who always tell me the truth, supports me through the worst days and does her best to make me feel good when I'm down. She can always find some sense in my ramblings and helps me see a way forward with any problems. She knows who she is and I thank her from the bottom of my heart for always being there.

Hi rainbow, I think it's wonderful that you've got an online friend such as this. Although it takes a bit more time, to get to know someone this way, and to build trust etc. between you, I think it's well worth it. I'm sure your friend will appreciate seeing this here. Thanks for sharing.:)
