I’m typically not a sucker for sappy greeting card commercials but this one got me…
Our words carry incredible power…
That little diddy you try to teach your kids… “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.”

Words can hurt, but more importantly they can bring life.
You have that choice today with each and every interaction.
Speak life-giving words today!
