A soft answer takes the sting right out of a quarrel. In the heat of a discussion, keep your cool. Watch your words during a frustration moment and … if you cannot think of anything good to say, just say nothing. Sweet Mom, generally what upsets you today will not matter tomorrow anyway – so before your mouth speaks, think! Remember, words cut deeply and what we say is gone forever. We cannot recover any of our past conversations … so … be wise.
Lovingly ~ Mama
