For example, a dear friend of mine has these terrific insights on motherhood. She shared some of them in an article, and she’s had some flaming feedback. (By “flaming,” I mean that my eyeballs are still burning.)
So the group, it seems, is Catholics, and specifically, Catholic women.
And maybe we haven’t all stopped getting along. I surely won’t get everyone reconciled with my little post on my out-of-the-mainstream blog.
But I want you to think about this. (And if you’re not a Catholic, and you’re not a woman, maybe you’ll still find food for thought.)
The next time you want to lambaste someone, try encouragement.
You might have to swallow some salt, get a new tongue from biting yours off, and stand on your head so you forget about what you were going to say.
Because, you know what? Arguments aren’t won (by “won,” I mean in people’s hearts) by whoever scores the most insults.
