As I have been thinking about "just the right words to say" at "just the right times" to those people I deal with on a daily basis, family, friends....anyone, I have come to a conclusion. I read this small quotation from an "author unknown" in an inspirational book and thought that I might share it with you.....
"The tongue has no bones, but can still break a heart!"
This is so true. I think that we all need to try and be sure that we bridle our tongues and not let them get out of control. We can use them for good or for hurt. We need to watch, on a daily basis, what we say and convey to others. This goes for dealing with children as well as adults. We can all look back and remember a time that someone spoke unkind to us as a child and even after we've grown up, and it still hurts just the same. Children seem to hurt more and form their thoughts and feelings about life from the words that they hear, especially from those who "love them."
Let's all be careful that our tongues don't get out of control. Life is short. Our journey is important, so let's make our words important also and use them to uplift and encourage, not to "break".
Have a blessed day and wonderful journey to the new you!
