Good Lesson

I lost a very dear friend because of other people's gossip, and even to this day the harm has yet to be undone. It may take a lifetime, to undo the harm. If only everyone could control their words.

I bought your book, Lori....

and I'm making my way through it. I would say that I have improved. :)Thanks! And to Mrs. Goldstein, the 81 year old woman on the internet - God bless you!

Great Reminder

This is a great reminder that just because someone doesn't "say" something is confidential doesn't mean it is something that should be told. Thanks! :)

gossip with 8 second delay

that would be nice to have a quiet button. I guess we should all breath deep and count to ten before we speak.
Definitely easier said then done but little by little one may strive to improve.
as always thank you for your words.
