Oh, the impact that our words can make. Positively. And negatively. There’s even a proverb that says “the tongue has the power of life and death.” All of us…young and old…have experienced both encouragement and pain from another’s words. And we’ve all wished we could take back words of our own.
This poem, written by Michael Bright and published in the book Silver Boxes, by Florence Littauer, provides an invaluable picture of the impact our words can make. I hope this will inspire you to wrap up some “silver boxes” of your own this weekend!
