Yes, we do. We have big giant mouths in our house. We can usually deal with the situations pretty good in our house, but when we get out of the house watch out!!!
I (my family too) tend to just tell it like it is. A lot of times I don’t even think about it before it comes out of my mouth. Want to know a few of the things I’ve done lately? Let me confess…. I made someone tell me if she was pregnant, told another she had large feet, told a mother of a two year old I didn’t want to hear her baby cry, told another lady she had an ugly table in her yard, told a neighbor she waved to much, told an acquaintance she WOULD like a watch like that, the list could go on and on. If you know me, you know I will tell you the truth. A couple friends joked (at least I hoped it was a joke) that they will need Heather rehab!!! I guess that’s one good thing about writing, you can always delete it. But I can’t delete all those awful things I said. In fact after I say them it bothers me so much! I think a lot of people do this, maybe not this extreme, but they do it too! I wonder how much it bothers them. I have been this way as far back as I can remember! I have friends from elementary school that still can tell you the awful truths I told them. I often wonder if my truth telling is one of the reasons why I get along so well with children. They do just the same. However, that doesn’t make it right. So, family, friends, neighbors, whoever I am sorry for my big mouth!
... let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak ...
I hope you can all learn from my wrong!
