          Taste Your Words Before You Spit Them Out!

😊 I read that the definition of a friend is someone who knows the song in your heart and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words. I have a few friends like that, and it is a great feeling. It is so easy to say things that do not communicate what you wanted to say. A good example of that is when I visited a close family member a while back. She was trying to explain why her home wasn’t as clean as she normally keeps it and I responded, in an effort to make her feel better, that when I was a single guy I vacuumed my home when I could write my name in the dust on the furniture. She later told me that her heart was broken, and she cried for several days. Needless to say, my heart was broken, but I didn’t cry. I sure felt like it. I resolved at no time to use that again. I do feel that if she knew me as well as I thought she would not have interpreted those words to be a criticism. I was expecting her to “sing back my song when I had forgotten the words.Andrew Card said, “You must taste your words before you spit them out!It doesn’t always happen ☹.
