If you are anything like me –sometimes it is hard to live up to what Mom taught me…”If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.”
Recently I heard a thought that struck with me:
Think about it, if we start with love, we aren’t saying things our mother’s would be sad to hear coming from our mouths. If we end with hope that things can improve, we walk away from every interaction a better person. I know I won’t get it right all the time, probably not even half the time, but I can try to be better.
