This quote made me stop in my tracks the first time I saw it.
I try to remind myself of this every time I am arguing with my husband, or scolding one of my kids..... your words can be thrown out without even thinking about them and yet, they can be something that leaves a lasting scar on the other person. Of course I believe in forgiveness, but sometimes there are things people have said to us (parents, spouses) that we never forget. They leave a mark. And I never want to do that to those that I love. So I try to remember......
