Boy . . . isn't that true! Think of all the calamity that could be averted if we just controlled our tongues! All the gossip, angry words, and thoughtless jabs we hurled at those around us and caused hurt and pain. Words that can never be taken back. If we had only guarded our tongues in the first place!
As mothers we have such power with our words. We can build our children up . . . giving the confidence leading to independence. Our we can tear them down . . . giving them baggage that they will carry with them the rest of their life. We can be encouragers instead of discouragers. We can speak with kindness instead of anger. We hold the power. Which will we choose?
