Grateful and Impressed

Last Update: April 14, 2015

I just had to write a quick note to say how continually grateful and impressed I am by those here at WA. It's an awesome community and I've loved the conversations I've been able to have with so many of you. I think it's easy to forget the impact our words can have on others. That's something I was reminded of in a not so pleasant way this week, and it has reminded me of how grateful I am for the positive examples. :)

A great post. It really gets you thinking about whether you take things out on people unintentionally and the consequences of those actions. We all have feelings and as you mentioned we should be kind to one another.

I left you a comment.

Lis.

Thanks Lis! I really appreciate your comments on the website! I know it definitely pushes me to try to be better and more careful about my comments towards others!

You are welcome :).

I always believe that it costs nothing to be kind and caring. I suppose the same can be said with comments that we make inadvertently throughout life!

ie: A little forethought costs nothing when it comes to showing a little bit of understanding when we make a comment to someone once in a while.

It is also a generous thing to have patients even when we do not feel that way at the times :).

I have just had a rough day or I would take the time to comment on your site, sorry. It is an excellent article! The Bible teaches us the power of life and death is in the tongue! It is a shame more people do not understand this truth!

No worries at all! Hopefully things are okay or at least get better! And yes, the Bible does teach that and how important it is that we are kind to reach other! :) I'll say a prayer for ya and hopefully tomorrow is a better day :)

You're right. Verbal abuse is just as bad as any other.

La Dawn, I read your post. It is true. We have feelings and words do hurt and cannot be taken back.

I always say to the children, If you can't find any positive words to say, then please keep your mouth shut!

I agree LaDawn, words have a powerful impact and once they're out you can't take them back.
I'm grateful every day that I found this community, a great place to hang out and learn. :)
