Im making my sister a "words of wisdom" jar. 365 small sheets with words of wisdom, quotes, advice etc. on them, for a high school graduation gift. She is 16..AWESOME. And will be living at home for the first year of college. She rocks! I need some help from you with words of wisdom, as I just cannot come up with them all on my own!! Thank you so so much :)
