Choose Your Words Carefully. (Reflections on Parenting: For My Family)

I've been finding the act of writing monumentally difficult lately, so I shall, for now, just borrow some words of wisdom from one far wiser than I. These words are about words, actually, and Heaven knows I need to work on mine.

"The one who holds his tongue is wise."

"Reckless words pierce like a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing."

"Pleasant words are a honeycomb: sweet to the soul and healing to the bones."

"A (person) of knowledge uses words with restraint, and a (person) of understanding is even-tempered."

How are your words today?
