A STITCH IN TIME SAVES NINE

Proverbs held a huge place in my thoughts as I was growing up. My very dear, elderly grandmother was full to running over with proverbs; and she resided in my home for approximately 9 years, while I was growing up. She was still with my parents many years after I was married.

Grandma was a real asset to our home, not that she wasn’t always busy, and helping wherever she could; but I loved being with her. She had a very loving spirit.

I spent hours “playing dolls” under the quilting frames, as she and my mother quilted.

Grandma’s proverbs seemed to just spill out of her in many simple, everyday situations; and I often mulled them over in my mind. Many were from the Bible, and others, to me, seemed to be just my Grandma’s proverb.

One proverb that seems to stand out to me was the proverb, “a stitch in time saves 9.”

So many times, I would try a little short cut, trying to perform some of my tasks, and there would be a slip-up somewhere, which ended in disaster. I would think, “Oh, if I would have just remembered that an “ounce of prevention, is worth a pound of cure,” or, “a stitch in time saves 9.” Each, of course, pointed out the need for being orderly, not slothful, and doing it right the first time

As I think back on the many proverbs that I was taught, I thank God for a Grandmother that pointed these out to me. It would be fun to know just how many “stitches” these proverbs have saved me
Grandma has been gone for many years, but the memories, and her wisdom, certainly linger on.
through the years.

Amen! I can't say that enough. Now I understand what that saying means, and I won't soon forget it. But I still don't know to what "nine" refers. Nine seconds? Nine minutes? Nine people? Nine complaints?
