The strongest muscle in your body...

          My hubby recently discovered a site with weird facts about human body. I was amazed to find out the tongue is the strongest muscle. Giving it a second thought, it makes sense. It is the strongest, and not only biologically speaking (Proverbs 15:4, Proverbs 18:21). Imagine this:

          Friday night. Your sister, your friend and you are getting ready to go out. As you are getting in the car, you yell at your sister because she borrowed one of your many bobby pins, then turn around to your friend, smile at her and compliment her on the shoes. Your fav  pair of shoes. None of them did ask for your permission to use your stuff. But you afford being a total bitch to your sister, she's always around.. You get to see your friend just once in a while.. right?...

          Well, that's messed up. Seriously. I did it: to my sisters, to my parents (all right, I never yelled at them, but you get the picture), to my husband. Same attitude, different situations. It's not funny, it's embarrassing. for me. and heartbreaking. for them. Even if they don't realize it. Sometimes, I'm ashamed of my acts and my words. 

          Today, I challenge myself. To be careful what I say. how I say it. and even more important, when I say it. because, being part of a family is the most wonderful gift you can ever receive.

what did you learn this week?...
