I kind of agree with The First Strike here Melvina. Nobody is perfect and sometimes in our life we do what we regret later. Even the Lord forgives and he preached forgiveness.

If only people could be kinder to each other the world would be a far better place than it is now. Love is the word that we all need to keep in mind as we go through each day. Please and Thank you. Knowing when to help someone and knowing what to say without hurting them is indeed a very wise thing to learn. Great philosophy. Love and hugs Ernestine XXX

Melvina, I understand your words so well. I try my best not to offend, but sometimes it happens innocently. A word that is misunderstood, taken out of context. I wish your words were easy to adhere to, even though I try we all make mistakes sometimes. As the old saying go, to err is human. Great write my friend. Top marks and thanks for sharing it. David
