Comes With Instructions

Daily Draw: Greenwood Tarot ~10 of Swords

After speaking of the 10 of Swords yesterday, here it comes today, to make a liar of me. In the Greenwood Tarot, her 10 of Arrows is subtitled Instruction.

I'm reminded by this card of a few of things my FIL has taught me in the last two years as we worked his farm.
#1, Safety First
#2, Safety First
#3, Money isn't everything.
#4, What it was like in 1932, as a child of 14 to get not only yourself, but your mother and two sisters fired for confronting the boss about shortchanging their paychecks. Times were tough and he sat in Mrs. Bear's office for two days until she recanted the firings and corrected their paychecks.
#5, Go light on the dynamite when blowing out stumps, otherwise your neighbor's tub might fall through the floor.
#6, When you have seven kids, a steady job that pays moderate is the wiser path than seeking a fortune.
#7, It is never too late to start something, you too may live to 91.
#8, How to raise healthy baby chicks.
#9, The true meaning of use it up, wear it out.
#10, Safety first.

"Instruction does much, but encouragement does everything." ~ Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe 1749-1832
