The English language fascinates me in so many ways. There are so many different pronunciations, different dialects, different phraseology depending on what part of the country you reside.
The words soda and pop are interchangeable, yet you order one in the north that isn't the way they speak, they tell you about it....same as in the south.
Our words affect our world. The things we say to ourselves and others have a direct impact on situations, moods and lives. A simple "no" can bring tears, as can a simple "yes".
The human brain is bombarded with words that fly around in there at warp speed, sometimes making us stumble, sometimes making us stop to think about what will come out of our mouths. I'm so guilty of keeping those words in my brain and not speaking them when I should. The loss of a friend this week made me think how important it is to speak the words that often go silent before we don't have the time to say them.
Don't be afraid to say, "I appreciate you." Don't be afraid to say, "I'm proud of who you've become," "You annoy me, but in a good way," "I don't like that, but I do like this," "You mean the world to me," "I'm so glad you're in my life," "I love you!"
And, speaking of words....Thank you to the latest reviewer of Mystic Capers. There is another Five Star Review on Amazon...this makes 3 now, and I am so appreciative and so humbled by the words written. Reviews allow others to check out books and it is an indicator of a new author/new read...so please, when you read books, leave reviews!
You all bless me in ways you'll never know. I do love and appreciate each of you for your own uniqueness and for wanting to be a part of what I do. Thank you!
