Words

Posted 26 July 2005

It's amazing, the power of words.

Monday was a dark and gloomy day for me because I received painful words. I had a long day, and trouble sleeping at night.

Today, Amanda saw I was making another followup appointment at the Health Service, and caught me in the hall to ask what was wrong. It was a brief conversation, but even that display of concern made my day.

The power of words is amazing -- harsh words on Monday cast me down, but kind words on Tuesday lifted me up.
