I wrote these words on the kitchen blackboard at the beginning of the year, to remind us to think before we speak. Over the weeks and months they faded, and were overwritten by other things we had to remember - 'order coal' 'dog food' or various unidentified mobile phone numbers etc - things of everyday life.
Over the last few days, I have been reminded of the wisdom of these words - not only in how we speak to each other as a family, but how we relate to others in this 'virtual' world. Blog posts, comments on other's posts and forum comments can all be read in different ways, depending on the circumstances or frame of mind of the reader.
I will strive to keep these words in my heart as well as on my blackboard. Blessings. xx
