WONDERFUL WEDNESDAY / The gift of gab
A little story to start the day.
A farm worker had got into the habit of not turning up on Monday mornings. This irritated the farmer, so one day he decided to have word with him: Look, here this habit of taking Mondays off will have to stop. You'll have to change your ways.
The following Monday morning the farm worker was back to the delight of the farmer but was missing again on the Tuesday morning. The farmer was furious: What's the meaning of this? I thought you'd agreed to change your ways.
Oh I'm so sorry, replied the farm worker, I thought you said change your days.
Have you ever said something and wished you hadn't. Or were your words misunderstood. I know I've been there many times.
Sometimes it all comes down to one word and how we can misunderstand what's been said. So many arguments, friction and fighting often start over nothing. It can often come down to a few careless words, spoken without depth or thought. The damage they can do has lost many friendships. But one word can also make the world of a difference.
Our words matter. What we say has an impact not only on our selves but on everything around us. Our words can shape our reality.
The words we speak and we don't speak, it all matters. Today I'm thankful that I can speak. There are many that can't. May we all use only wonderful words today...wonderful words of life.
Have a WONDERFUL Wednesday everyone!
